Mr STEPHEN JONES (Throsby) (13:59): No doubt there are many things that divide us on both sides of the House, but one thing that all fair-minded representatives in this place would agree on is that the mighty St George Illawarra Dragons are undoubtedly the best team in the competition—a matter that I am sure the member for Barton would agree with. The biggest topic of conversation in the Illawarra at the moment is the renewal of the existing contract this year, keeping seven games for the mighty Illawarra Dragons in the Illawarra. Without this minimum number of games, the local fans would be severely disappointed. It is important for the local economy and important to ensuring that the Illawarra's overwhelming contribution to making the mighty Illawarra Dragons one of the best teams in the competition will be recognised. So I call upon the Dragons to ensure the Illawarra gets a fair shake at the number of home games we get to see.
