The first-ever Dragon Cup between Aussie Rules UK's England and Wales representative sides was held last weekend in Cardiff, with the England Dragonslayers running out 5-goal winners over the Wales Red Dragons.

After the national anthems and a minute's silence for Welsh rugby legend Ray Gravell who died during the week, a hard-hitting match was underway with the Welshmen surprising the more experienced English team with their ferocity at the ball. Led by captain Jack Wells, the Welsh were well in the game until the Dragonslayers pulled away in the last quarter.

England's Mark Todd kicked five goals in a best-on-ground performance, with Daniel Morgan-Kane the best for the Red Dragons.
