2017 Dragons Medal recipients

St George Illawarra have had another busy year of rugby league which has been completed with the presentation of 24 Dragons Medals to local high schools from within the Dragons catchment.

It was especially pleasing for the club to see so many high schools who have again responded in making our Dragons Medal a part of their end of year awards.

Dragons Medal recipients are selected by teachers at the respective schools on the criteria that the player displays great team work, respects all players and officials and represents their school with pride win, lose or draw.

Dragons' ambassadors Matt Cooper and Kezie Apps have been on hand at many of the 24 presentations to personally award the medal.

Currently there are four previous winners of the Dragons Medal in the St George Illawarra Dragons NRL full-time squad.

They include:

  • Hame Sele -Kingsgrove High (2013)
  • Luciano Leilua – Endeavor Sports High (2014)
  • Zac Lomax – Figtree High (2015-16), and;
  • Ruben Garrick – Kiama High (2015)

Another member of the Dragons' full-time squad Steven Marsters from Holy Spirit High was also awarded a 2017 Dragons Medal.
