Score Dragons to make long awaited return in Canberra

The Score Dragons will head to Canberra's to face off with their Raiders counterparts on Saturday, December 5 as part of the ACT's International Day of People with Disability celebrations.

With Raiders HQ in Bruce playing host from 12-4pm, the Score match will be the first time both teams will have played one another since their inaugural game at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 2019 where the Raiders came away with a win in the dying seconds.

Both teams are looking forward to playing one another as their game scheduled for earlier this year was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Both teams have been training since the start of July in anticipation of this game, although the Score Dragons community program is now in its seventh year.

The 2015 NRL Community Program of the Year, has been the inspiration for the Canberra Raiders, Wests Tigers and Melbourne Storm to adopt similar programs.

With the support of the St George Illawarra Dragons and Canberra Raiders, the Score program hope to have more competition opportunities in 2021.

The Disability Trust's Manager of Sport and Recreation Services Michael Norris said: "I'm pleased the Score Dragons are able to once again showcase the skills and talents as well as catch up with their friends after a long break.

Due to the ongoing to success of the Score Dragons program, the St George Illawarra Dragons have recently set up an opportunity for the community to contribute and help continue the success, by way of donations through The Australian Sport Foundation. Click to donate.
