The St George Illawarra Dragons represents St. George and Illawarra regions. The club entered the NRL competition in 1999 as a joint venture between the St. George Dragons and the Illawarra Steelers.

The team has its headquarters and leagues clubs in both Wollongong and the Sydney suburb of Kogarah, and train and play games regularly at WIN Stadium in Wollongong as well as at WIN Jubilee Oval in Kogarah.
The Dragons reached the grand final in their first season in 1999, losing to the Melbourne Storm. In 12 seasons, the Dragons have made the play-offs nine times. The St. George Illawarra Dragons also field teams in local competitions within the St. George and Illawarra regions. With their round 25 win over the Newcastle Knights, the Dragons secured their second successive minor premiership and become the only team to be awarded the J. J.

The Dragons are currently the reigning NRL premiers, having won the 2010 NRL Grand Final against the Sydney Roosters, defeating them 32-8 at ANZ Stadium, Sydney, Australia.
