The venue is Greenbridge Road, kick off will be 2.30pm and St George will be looking to build on last week’s impressive second half display at Oxford.

A spokesperson said: "Though beaten by a hefty scoreline, mainly piled up by the home side in the first period, the break allowed Dragons to tighten up in defence and refocus their attacking threat. 

"Head coach Richard White will be asking for more of the same this time round, when Birmingham Bulldogs come calling, as optimism continues to build within the home camp.

"The game represents the first chance for home fans to get a close look at the Powerwash Dragons 2024 line-up, with 17-year-old Ty Lehman hoping to repeat his man of the match performance at Oxford in what was his senior debut in the game, having risen right through the club’s junior pathway and so being the first Swindon youngster to make that big step. 

"The action takes place at Swindon Rugby Club, admission is free and the bar will be open throughout and after the game. 

"All spectators are more than welcome to come along to experience the fast and furious world of Rugby League!"
