Dean Young

St George Illawarra Dragons stalwart Dean Young will retire at the end of the NRL season.

The 28-year-old will confirm at a press conference this morning that he will remain a one-club man, having played 193 games for the Dragons since hitting the NRL scene in 2003.

Young was contracted with the Dragons until the end of 2014, but a troublesome injury to his left knee has forced him to rethink his plans.
