So - we play Jess in the centres and a few of the forwards ?

I think Cam was about our best all year.

I tend to think the recently deceased E Lumsden could have shown a few of our "modern" wingers how to run the ball.
RIP Ed.

The cashed-up St George Illawarra Dragons have stockpiled a $4 million war chest for 2021 as the Red V look to sharpen their roster for a premiership assault.

The Dragons have 12 players in their top squad off-contract at the end of next season headed by representative stars Tyson Frizell, Jack de Belin and James Graham.

Young guns Luciano Leilua, Jackson Ford and Zac Lomax also form a part of the Red V’s roster jigsaw, with other off-contract players including Euan Aitken, Jacob Host, Tim Lafai, Josh Kerr, Jonus Pearson and Mikaele Ravalawa.

St George Illawarra have not been active in the open market since landing the signatures of halfback Ben Hunt and English international Graham at the end of 2017.
But with so many big-name players off-contract, the club will be in a position to make some smart roster management decisions.

A host of big-name players will all be able to sign with rival clubs as of November 1 for the 2021 season.
The Dragons are monitoring the situation of Wests Tigers star Ryan Matterson, who is expected to make a call to sign with Parramatta later this week.

please don't add to the L Mitchell / holmes whispers by saying the Dragons are interested in them.
It really doesn't matter who or whom they waste their money on if they don't change the clubs playing style.
Its been horrendously inconsistent for years except for 2010 when we used an outside coach.
Sending Mary on a junket to NFL camps will achieve zilch.....unless its to just get him out of the way for early season training

New-look coaching staff will put St George Illawarra through a military-style pre-season as the club aims to restore supporters’ faith following a dismal 2019 NRL season.

The brutal standards were revealed as players returned to training in scorching conditions in Wollongong this week, with punishments dished out for poor body language, including hands on hips or heads.

CEO Brian Johnston will walk away from the St George Illawarra Dragons once Jack de Belin’s trial has concluded.

Strong rumours around this - as to why he is leaving.
