Dragons back on the road to Mudgee next week

The St George Illawarra Dragons will be returning to Mudgee's Glen Willow Stadium for their Round 11 clash against the Canberra Raiders at Glen Willow Stadium.

Kicking off at the family friendly time of 2pm on Sunday, May 20, this will mark the Dragons' second time playing in front of the Mudgee faithful in 2018.

This is following February's Westfund Charity Shield showdown against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in front of an impressive crowd.

"One of the highlights of my childhood was when NRL teams would come to my hometown of Cairns to play games," Dragons winger Nene Macdonald said.

"For me to now be in this position and to be heading out to Mudgee throughout the year, it's a great opportunity for the people in the area to have the same experiences I was fortunate enough to have growing up."

Together with Mudgee's stunning heritage streetscapes and museums, boutiques, chic shopping precincts, galleries and studios, the Mudgee races will be held on Saturday, May 19.

On top of this, all of the beautiful local wineries will have cellar doors open. It's the perfect time for a weekend away or a simple day trip to many of the Mid-Western communities including Lithgow, Orange, Bathurst and Dubbo. 

All rugby league fans from the region are encouraged to pre-purchase tickets.

Family tickets (two adults and two children or one adult and three children) are also available for the Round 11 clash at the low price of $55.

You can purchase your tickets to the Raiders game here.

The Mudgee Faithful membership is also a viable option for those wanting to see both Dragons games at Glen Willow Stadium in 2018.
