ST George Illawarra's round 11 clash against the Canberra Raiders at Mudgee's Glen Willow Stadium on Sunday, May 20 is quickly approaching.

The Dragons, featuring Gerringong’s Tariq Sims, can't wait to get back to Mudgee following the success of February's Westfund Charity Shield against South Sydney.

The Red V returns to the Central West of New South Wales atop the 2018 NRL Telstra Premiership, despite suffering their first loss of the season to South Sydney last round, and will come up against a desperate Raiders outfit.

St George Illawarra forward Sims can't wait to get back out to the Central West.

"Having spent almost a week in the Central West earlier in the year, the boys are keen to get back out there and play in front of another packed out Mudgee crowd against the Raiders," Sims said.

"With more Dragons games to come out that way over the next 18 months, we have made Mudgee our home away from home.

"There are plenty of great tickets still available and the team and I hope to see the Dragons faithful in full force at Glen Willow Stadium."
