Match Preview | Dragons v Roosters

The Sydney Roosters and St George Illawarra Dragons are set to do battle on Thursday night football on the 105th anniversary of The Battle Of Lone Pine at Win Stadium.

Round 13 will mark the first team the Roosters have played twice so far in 2020, having played the Dragons at Bankwest Stadium in Round 7. 

With the anniversary of The Battle of Lone Pine, Mitchell Aubusson's 300th, James Tedesco's 150th and the Anzac Cup on the line, it's safe to say there'll be some extra emotion in this one. 

The Roosters have won their last two, while the Dragons are looking to return to the winners list after back-to-back narrow losses.
