Round 15 kicks off on Thursday night in Wollongong with St George Illawarra taking on South Sydney. Here’s how to watch the match on Kayo and catch up on all the news in the lead-up.

Dragons v Rabbitohs preview

One team just inside the eight, the other just outside, and Thursday night will be crucial for both the Dragons and Rabbitohs.

St George Illawarra sit outside the eight on for-and-against, while the Rabbitohs are a win inside courtesy of last week’s 30-16 victory over Gold Coast Titans in Queensland last week.

As was hinted, Latrell Mitchell misses another week, in all likelihood ending his chances of State of Origin 2 selection for NSW. While for the Dragons, Mikaele Ravalawa will return from a hamstring injury and Tariq Sims has been named, after he was rested against the Cowboys following Origin 1.

What time is Dragons v Rabbitohs?

The game starts at 7.50pm (AEST), 7.20pm (ACST) and 5.50pm (AWST) on Thursday 16 June.
