Club History

The Moss Vale Dragons Rugby League Football Club was originally formed in 1910 but never took part in competition until 1914 and where then known as the Moss Vale Blues due to the sky blue jerseys they wore. The club was made up of three entities, the minor league (7's-11's), junior league (12's-16's) and the Senior League with each having its own committee but operating as one incorporation.

The Junior Dragons have enjoyed a lot of success throughout the years winning plenty of premierships and Club Championships. All teams played for Grand Finals in the early days and every age group played the same game with the same rules, the Mini League (under 6,s,7's,8's and 9's) which we are so familiar with today was introduced in 1983 followed by Mod League (10's,11's and 12's) in 1985. The minor and junior leagues joined during the early 80's to form what was, The Moss Vale Junior Rugby League Football Club.

In 1991 the Junior League became its own incorporation to be known as the Moss Vale Junior Dragons Rugby League Club Inc. This new Incorporation was very successful in the nineties winning the Group 6 Club Championship in 93 and a couple of premierships.

The Moss Vale Junior Dragons has proven to be a good training ground for Rugby League talent over the years with players such as:

                                                         

                                                                Chris Guider                                

                                                       

                                                              Owen Saunders                   

                                       

                                                            Nathan Hindmarsh    

                                      

Ian Hindmarsh                             

                                                     

                                                              Scott Geddes    

                                                           

                                                                Darren Mapp

These past and present national rugby league (NRL), level players all played with our club as juniors and we are sure there will be plenty more in the coming years.

If you have any early history that you would like to share feel free to contact us.

Thanks to former Junior Dragons players Jim Bizjak and Terry Guider for the information, articles and photo's from the early 70's.
