Milne: Ready To Take My Chance

Milne: Ready To Take My Chance

St George Illawarra Dragons centre Taane Milne is hoping to impress against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the annual Charity Shield fixture at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park on Saturday.

The Clovelly Crocodiles junior is one of several off-season recruits who had the opportunity to get a taste of competed action wearing the Red V jersey in the recent 50-6 trial fixture win over the Wynnum-Manly Seagulls last weekend.

The two-time Junior Kiwi hopes to emulate his performance there with another strong display in the upcoming traditional fixture which will again raise valuable awareness to several charities including the St.George Foundation as well as St George Hospital and Wollongong Hospital.

“It was good to get the cobwebs out against the Seagulls and I thought all the boys had a good game,” said Milne.

“I managed to work in a few combinations with Will Matthews during the match as he was in the back-row and also played alongside new Cutters signing Shaun Nona who was in the halves and gave me some good clean ball.

 “It’ll be great if I can get on the park again during the Charity Shield and I’ll take that opportunity if it comes with both hands so hopefully I get the chance to impress the coaches.

“I’ve been watching the Charity Shield for the past couple of years as it’s a big game that everyone watches and it means a lot to the Club.

“It’s always good to give back to the charities and the community in general and we are supporting some good causes this year.”

The Charity Shield commenced in 1982 and so too did the tradition of supporting local charities and causes. In 2016, proceeds from the Charity Shield will support three charities within the Dragons Community program – the St George and Wollongong Public Hospitals in addition to the St.George Foundation.

Dragons Community was established in 2008 with the aim of having a positive impact on people’s lives within their community which stretches from Kogarah in the north to Batemans Bay in the south.

Dragons Community currently runs over seven key programs across their three major program portfolios:

* Education & Skills       * Health & Wellbeing      * Social Inclusion
 
St.George Foundation was founded in 1990 by St.George Bank, the major partner of the St George Illawarra Dragons, to help build a secure future for disadvantaged children. Since its inception, the Foundation has invested over $25 million in funding programs that enrich the lives of Australian children who are physically, socially or economically disadvantaged.

For the 2016 Charity Shield, St.George Foundation will once again showcase the selfless work demonstrated by local charity ‘Kookaburra Kids’, who will form the guard of honour at the game to represent the thousands of children across Australia who are helped by St.George Foundation each year.

Results

The St George Illawarra Dragons drew 12-all with the South Sydney Rabbitohs in last season’s corresponding fixture held at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park. In the 32 Charity Shield fixtures contested since 1982, the Dragons have recorded 16 wins, 11 losses and drawn on five occasions.
