A Short History Of The St George Dragons
Believe it or not, the St George Dragons have only competed in the NRL since 1999, after the St George Dragons and the Illawarra Steelers formed the game’s first joint venture club. They reached the grand final that year but unfortunately lost to the Melbourne Storm. Their team colours are red and white, which were shared by both teams. Their logo was taken directly from St George, adding in Illawarra to the bottom. The idea was that the emblem showed the rich history of the St George Dragons, which includes an impressive 11 consecutive premierships. Here’s something you might not know. The name of the club, the ‘Dragons’, was shortened from the original nickname which was ‘Dragonslayers’.
The Latest St George Dragons Merchandise
The current Dragons team emblem features a red shield with an image of St George, with a white Dragon placed over the top. The emblem also features the words ‘St George’ and ‘Illawarra’. Originally, the image was supposed to show St George facing right and the Dragon facing left (not facing each other, that’s a different story). The jersey that was chosen when they formed in 1998, was the famous ‘Red V’ on white, and the red was changed to a more scarlet tone to reflect the colour that had been used in the Steelers.
