  1. He’s gone mate. Asked for a release last year which was granted and was supposedly heading to Cronulla but clearly that fell through

  2. Yep, the great St.George masterplan to get Jai Field to bulk up 10kg worked well.

    Another McGregor special to prove everyone else was wrong & he was right not to pick him..

  3. Indeed Pheonix. Another Dragons ‘special’ talent which they couldn’t convert into 1st grade success. Dufty, Field, Host, Leilua, Garrick. All eggs in the Lomax basket apparently.

    It just goes to show, if you want to have 1st grade success with the Dragons, be an average player at another club. The Dragons will pick you up and play you blindly just to prove that ‘they now have the team they want’.

  4. Sydney Morning Herald is claiming this Jayden Sullivan is going to make some waves at the nines. Hopefully not another potential star turned into a dud by the dragons, then released only to become the next big thing.

  5. Cody Ramsey looks a talent St.George supporters. Though he didn’t get anywhere near scoring the try to Win against Penrith. Is that touch judge employed on the coaching staff there at St.George or something like that?
