"We will be looking for a better start this week with more commitment in defence, and then look to have continued improvement in our attack," said Coach Brad Liggins. 

"If we play like we did in last 50 minutes of the Roosters match we should be in this game throughout."

The St George Dragons Harold Matthews Cup match commences at 12.00pm with the SG Ball Cup following at 1.30pm.

The Illawarra Steelers will host both the SWSAS in the Harold Matthews Cup and Coast Pirates at WIN Stadium, Wollongong.

The Illawarra Steelers Harold Matthews Cup team will be looking to turn around their previous round Round loss to WSAS.

“A win on Saturday would do wonders for our Finals aspirations, but more importantly it would be a boost to our confidence," said Coach Adam Blake.

"We’re hoping we can regain some of our early season form and play the footy we’re really capable of playing."

The Illawarra Steelers SG Ball team will be hopeing to continue their unbeaten run this season which has seen them go top of the table

“The Pirates will be travelling a long way to get here, and I know they won’t be coming to lose," said Coach Shane Millard.

"We’re really going to have to bring our A-game this week.

“We’re keeping it relatively simple as the boys love their footy and want to enjoy themselves – all we do is mould them to be the best they can be."
