St George sponsor Japanese League

St George Illawarra Dragons have once again been instrumental in promoting international Rugby League.

After donating jerseys to Russian Rugby League, the Dragons have now come to the aid of the Kagoshima Broncos juniors from Japan.

The Kagoshima Broncos toured Australia last month and were invited to attend coaching clinics. The youngsters also played a match against Bossley Park who defeated the visitors 24-6.

Meanwhile, the USA have been forced to cancel a tour of Japan following concerns over the war with the Iraq. The tour was to include a match against the national side, the Japansese Samurais on March 29 in Tokyo.

The organisers instead opted for a match which saw the Samurais easily defeating local domestic champions, the Eastern Bulldogs by 72-10.
