Two of our participants, Samil Bagia and Emily Clarke, who are members of our Score Dragons League program in the Illawarra, were given the opportunity to be a part of the St George Illawarra Dragons home game on Sunday 23 July when the Dragons played Manly at Win Stadium. Samil was chosen to be a Dragon for a day which gave him a full day game experience with the club which included –
- Helping to set up the ground
- Assisting the Dragons under 20 team (even involved going into the sheds to sing the team victory song)
- Setting up for various game day activities including half time events
Emily was chosen to do the coin toss before the main game with a coin that had both the Dragons and Eagles logos on either side of the coin to help commemorate the Women In League Round. Emily did a great job and was able to meet the captains of both teams Gareth Widdop from the Dragons and Manly Captain Daley Cherry Evans. Emily was given the coin after she did the toss a memento of her experience.
We would like to thank the St George Illawarra Dragons for this brilliant opportunity and their continued support of our Score Dragons League program.
