The St George Illawarra Dragons are in talks with their coach Paul McGregor to extend his contract which would see him at the helm of the club for future seasons, according to The Mole.

After what was a strong 2018 performance from the Red V, the club is keen to continue with McGregor’s direction with the club finishing seventh on the ladder and playing finals since 2015.

The Dragons stunned many of their critics who did not have them finishing in the top eight with solid performances throughout the season, then completed a stellar ambush against the Broncos at Suncorp week one of the finals series.

Their season ended in cruel fashion suffering a one-point loss to the Rabbitohs during the second week of the finals, but nonetheless, exceeded many peoples’ expectations.

McGregor is believed to have done enough this season to earn a contract extension with his manager David Riolo currently talking to Dragons officials regarding terms and conditions.

The former Test centre will be off contract at the end of the 2019 season but is hoping to secure a further two-year deal as a reward for the clubs impressive improvement in 2018.
