Good natured rivalry continues in Canberra’s GIO Stadium

The rivalry between the Score Raiders and the Score Dragons rugby league teams intensified with another exciting game on Friday 11th March in Canberra. There was a four-point difference at the end of the game, with the Score Dragons running out winners, albeit by a narrower margin than the last encounter between the teams.
After the game Score Raiders player Liam O’Donnell said, “It was pretty nerve wracking. I realise just how big the stadium is when looking around the ground. It’s good to play the Score Dragons again. The game was much closer. Last time we played they won by ten points, but today they only beat us by four.”
Score Dragon Samil Bagia had this to say following the result.  “It was tough, a very close game, 14-10. All credit to the boys and girls out there. It was heaps good and everyone got a touch of the ball which is pretty great.  It’s always a pleasure to face the Score Raiders. It’s a big rivalry, us being together for 11 years, and them just coming through with a bunch of young guys. It’s really great to see.”
The Score Raiders and the Score Dragons came about through partnerships forged between The Canberra Raiders, The St. George Illawarra Dragons and The Disability Trust, designed to provide people with disabilities a chance to play rugby league. The program continues to deliver positive outcomes, ensuring that people with disabilities are included and integrated as part of the local rugby league community.
