THE Moss Vale Dragons under-7s players had an up close NRL experience on Monday.

The juniors had an opportunity to run on ANZ Stadium ahead of the NRL match between Parramatta Eels and Wests Tigers.

Despite poor weather conditions, the Dragons played a match against the Hills District.

The young Highlanders were then invited to form a guard of honour and high-five the Eels and Tigers NRL players as they ran on to the field.

Moss Vale under-7s coach Andrew Crimmins said it was a great opportunity for his team.

“The kids loved it,” he said.

“We only had nine players, but it was a bit of fun for them and they were in the tunnel before the (NRL) game.”

The Dragons were invited to the game as part of the For the Farmers campaign.

The Parramatta club partnered with NSW Farmers Association and Country Rugby League (CRL) to celebrate the contribution farmers make to the community.

Monday’s NRL match was won by the Tigers, which overcame a 6-4 deficit at half time to win 22-6.

Moss Vale’s players will return to the field this weekend when the Group 6 CRL junior competition resumes after the Easter break.
