Java applets: Just 15

This is a game for two players. You take it in turns to collect numbers. The first person tocollect three numbers that add up to 15 wins. If nobody has won when all the numbers are taken, the game is a draw.

Is there a winning strategy for this game, so that player one always wins? Or player two? Or if both players play their perfect strategy, will it always end up as a draw?
