The South Sydney Rabbitohs and St George Illawarra Dragons have today confirmed the 2016 Charity Shield, set to be played on Saturday 13 February at ANZ Stadium.
A new chapter in the history of both Clubs will be written when Michael Maguire’s men face off against Paul McGregor’s Red V in what will be the 33rd Charity Shield. This is your chance to see the traditional rivalry at its best as players from both teams play for their positions during the trial period.
The 33rd Charity Shield will also be the first opportunity for Rabbitohs Members and supporters to see the boys play at home in Sydney in the new-year, following on from the Auckland Nines tournament that is scheduled to be played between 6-7 February.
The Rabbitohs will also play one other full-format trial when they take on the Gold Coast Titans at Pizzey Park on the Gold Coast on Saturday February 20.
The Rabbitohs currently hold the Shield after drawing with the Dragons in an exciting low-scoring affair at ANZ Stadium in 2015.
Tickets will go on sale at ticketek.com.au to Members on Tuesday 15 December from 10am, with General Public tickets available from 10 am December 17.
