Sadly Wendells young boy has issues now.
No contract for 2021 and alleged sex offences for which he has now been charged.

Hopefully for his and the clubs sake it will be sorted and finalised a lot quicker than JDB's issues.

presumption of innocence should still apply until court matters have run their course.
Yes - it doesn't sound good for him.

Anthony Griffin believes the recruitment of two experienced forwards would complete a roster capable of ensuring the Dragons celebrate their 100th season in 2021 with a return to the finals.

Griffin, who will oversee the club’s return to training on November 17, aims to focus on developing the young talent within St George Illawarra’s catchment area but he is looking to replace Test forwards Tyson Frizell and James Graham next season.

Josh McGuire, Joe Ofahengaue and Jack Bird are among the players linked with the Dragons and Griffin said negotiations were happening behind the scenes with rival clubs that he hoped would result in some new recruits arriving in Wollongong before the end of the year.

The Dragons will next season celebrate the 100th anniversary of St George’s admission to the premiership in 1921 and Griffin said he wanted to make the finals to commemorate the centenary year.

Ben Hunt is going to be charged with directing the team around, and Griffin said he was now one of the most experienced playmakers in the NRL following the departures of Cooper Cronk, Johnathan Thurston and James Maloney in recent seasons.

Lomax, Ramsey, fullback Matt Dufty, outside backs Max and Mat Feagai, lock Jackson Ford and prop Blake Lawrie are all young talent with potential for improvement, he added.

Meanwhile, Griffin said listening to former Prime Minister John Howard talk about his lifelong support of the Dragons made him realise the significance of the club's history and the responsibility he has taken on as coach.

The centenary launch was attended by a host of former players, including John Riley, Craig Young, Steve Edge, Ricky Walford, Brad Mackay, Mark Gasnier, Ben Creagh, Ben Hornby, Dean Young and Jason Nightingale.

Key features of the centenary throughout 2021 will include:
  • A centenary book written by respected author and Dragons historian Geoff Armstrong;
  • Four new additions to be inducted into the "Legend’s Walk" at Kogarah;
  • A museum to be opened within St George Leagues Club;
  • The naming of the Dragons Team of the Century.
