The Dragons' annual month-long pre-season community blitz continued yesterday, with the squad visiting schools and assisting with after-school clinics throughout the St George region.

As part of these school visits students are introduced to the new NRL Junior Non-Contact program, which is a before or after school program giving primary school children (8-12 years old) the opportunity to experience Rugby League in a fun, safe and friendly environment.

This program caters for children of all ability levels with a focus on developing the fundamental skills of Rugby League. Click here for more information.
