The St George Illawarra Dragons received a boost ahead of their first trial match of 2013 thanks to the support of Red V Members who attended an exclusive Members-only training session on Friday morning.
The group of dedicated Red V Members watched the team sweat it out at Barlow Park in their final hit-out before tonight's first game of the year against the North Queensland Cowboys.
Following a quick drink at re end of the session the players and Coach Steve Price made their way up into the shady stand to meet and mingle with around 40 Red V Members.
"We know we have fantastic support in far North Queensland and it was also great to see that so many had made the trip from New South Wales as well to support us," said Head Coach Steve Price.
"We are looking forward to putting on a good spectacle for them against the Cowboys and we all greatly appreciate their support".
Coach Price indicated that all 25 players who travelled will get some game time tomorrow night with many of the Red V Members excited to see how some of the new faces in the Red V for 2013.
Dragons Red V Ambassador Wendell Sailor also stepped in to interview the crowd of Members - look out for it on DragonsTV!
