Tigers to take game against Dragons to the SCG

The Sydney Cricket Ground has been announced as the venue for the clash between the Wests Tigers and the St George Illawarra Dragons next season.

The Tigers who have traditionally been the journeymen of the NRL in that they use several different grounds over the course of the year, will continue that trend in 2011.

Leichhardt Stadium, Campbelltown Stadium, the Sydney Football Stadium, and the Sydney Cricket Ground are all set to host Wests Tigers home games.

The game, scheduled for Rd 22 of the NRL season will celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1961 Grand Final between Wests Magpies and St George.

Stephen Humphreys, Wests Tigers CEO believes that the club has managed to achieve perhaps the best split between the four venues that they could have come up with.

“It’s great to see Campbelltown and Leichhardt have four matches once again and there are some exciting clashes at those grounds, Humphreys said.

“I’m really looking forward to celebrating our historical rivalry against the Dragons at the SCG. This is such an important part of our history and it will be an exciting time for the club.”
