This is potentially one of the games of the year on the 2011 National Rugby League calendar.
During his tenure at the Brisbane Broncos, Wayne Bennett won an unprecedent six premierships.
Now he returns to his former stomping ground, Suncorp Stadium, with his St. George Illawarra Dragons to take on the Broncos under the guidance of Anthony Griffin.
Under Griffin, the Broncos have surprised many League pundits this year and he is fast gaining a reputation as one of the best new coaches to emerge on the NRL scene of late.
Last year, the Dragons won the NRL premiership but were unable to beat the Broncos in this corresponding game.
Coach Griffin will be looking to repeat that performance before what shapes as a bumper Friday night crowd. Get your tickets now for what promises to be a beauty.
