Dragons star Tyson Frizell has denied reports that he wants out of the club.

St George Illawarra were smashed by the Panthers on Friday night as rumours swirled that the 27-year old was unhappy and wanted out of his contract.

However, Frizell downplayed any talk of a potential move and says he intends to honour his contract.

“Obviously there have been some rumours circling around about my future at the club and for me nothing has changed,” Frizell told reporters.

“I’m here until the end of 2020 and as long as I’m welcome at the club I’ll be here until then and all those rumours that have been tossed around are very false.

“I haven’t had anything from anyone else or been spoken to or asked for a release, [I haven’t] had people try to shop me around or anything like that on my behalf and from my manager we don’t know what’s going on and where those rumours have come from.”

The NSW and Kangaroos star said he was upfront with coach Paul McGregor and denied any sort of falling out.

“I’ve got a really good relationship with Mary,” Frizell said.

“If I was unhappy with anything or he knew I was unhappy at the club, he’d be the first one I’d speak to and he knows that… He knows there’s nothing to it.”

The Dragons coach was understandably unhappy with his side’s performance against Penrith, flagging a host of changes to the line-up.

“There will be team changes for sure,” McGregor said.

“We’ve got a couple of players coming back so that will make the team change and certainly there will be a couple of other spots to change as well.”


  1. It’s a shame the roosters dont have a couple of Frizells in their side this year.
    I believe they’ll struggle in Sept because of this shortfall.
