One of two current merged entities (the other being the Wests Tigers) the St. George Illawarra Dragons are the pride of not only the St. George basin, but of the entire Illawarra region, and when representing two rugby league heartlands there’s plenty of expectation afoot.
With just the one premiership as a merged entity in 2010, fans remain equal parts demanding and weary. With Anthony Griffin at the helm for the first time in 2021, the Dragons are attempting to breathe fire for the first time in a long time. To see if the magic Dragon can indeed puff this year, read on to find out how to watch them.
St. George Illawarra Dragons Preview
Oh boy. Over the past few years, the Dragons and scandals have become somewhat synonymous. Having endured the Jack De Bellin saga for the best part of three years, constant questions over Corey Norman’s activities since his arrival and the acrimonious parting of ways with club legend Paul McGregor last season, Red V fans thought that maybe 2021 under discipline focused new coach Anthony Griffin would provide a drama-free ride.
Cue Paul Vaughan. The former Australian and NSW representative breached NRL COVID-bubble protocols resulting in his contract being torn up, and suspensions being handed out to a further 12 players. As a result, squad depth is now being tested as the pointy end of the season arrives, yet somehow, amidst middling performances and off-field distractions, the Dragons remain in the hunt for September football.
With star halfback Ben Hunt finding form post origin, unwanted speedster Matt Dufty flying at fullback and their forwards consistently mounting a challenge, the Dragons remain a curious side to watch each round.
St George game and broadcast guide
Fortunately, there are several options for watching the St. George Illawarra Dragons live in Australia, including the Nine Network, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports. Network Nine is the official NRL free to air broadcaster and will show a select number of St. George Illawarra Dragons’ matches live during the 2021 Premiership season across channel Nine and 9Now. Nine’s TV coverage is headed by Erin Moran, alongside a commentary team made up of Andrew Johns, Billy Slater and James Bracey. Nine also offers live streaming options during the 2021 NRL season with the 9Now app, but these are limited to the games they broadcast and do not offer full match replays.
For comparison and as shown in the TV schedule below, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra, and Kayo Sports will televise all 25 rounds of St. George Illawarra Dragons matches during the 2021 Premiership season. That’s every St. George Illawarra Dragons game in every scheduled round shown live with no ad-breaks during play, on the dedicated Fox League channel.
As well as these live matches and the option to watch replays at a later time, Foxtel, Foxtel from Telstra and Kayo Sports will also have a wide range of NRL programming that includes NRL Tonight, The Big League Wrap and the Late Show with Matty Johns. There are lots of new faces in the studio this season as every live game will be fronted by Yvonne Sampson, Lara Pitt and Jess Yates, as they step up from smaller league shows. Post-match analysis has also been freshened up and now includes a former NRL giant in the shape of Cooper Cronk.
