THERE IS NOTHING LIKE RUGBY LEAGUE IN SEPTEMBER......
...and aren't the Dragons standing up and being counted when it really matters. After 26 rounds of wins and losses, injuries and suspensions, unearthing exciting new talent and seeing other's lose their first grade positions, getting flogged and unlikely victories on the siren, here we are now 2 wins off a maiden premiership for the joint venture. The patience, composure and determination the 1-17 and the coaching staff are all showing at the moment augurs well for the next 2 assignments in our premiership dream. Last weekend's shut-out of Manly was a great achievement for the team and sets them up well for the big clash with the Storm this Saturday night at Telstra Stadium.
The MBDS screening was another outstanding success at the Station Hotel with a crowd of just over 50 members in attendance. (See attachment) This represents our second biggest attendance ever, and we are looking to top that this Saturday night in what is a local derby for those of us in the Southern Capital. The Station Hotel will once again host the screening with 2 big screens and audio dedicated to the Greatest Game of All. As The Station is likely to attract a big number of Storm supporters we would love to get everyone out this Saturday night to watch the match and outnumber them in their own city. There is nothing like the passion of a Dragons supporter and the Storm fans will realise this on Saturday night.
