It is a dangerous game - but you hope this doesn't happen. So easy if the other players don't realise in time.
we have had a few players cop seriously injuries like Stephenson, at the choccy soldiers, Mckinnon the knights ex dragons player, Ben Ross at the sharks, Mose who was lucky to play a game at the dragons due to injury.

When you think back to unlimited tackle with its stiff or swinging arms or Cumberland throw tackles or Nev Hornery giving Noel kelly a work out in the scrum the game has been relatively serious injury free.
Lets hope it stays that way.

Letting young Marsters get away could end up a big loss to the Dragons and a bonus at the Bunnies.
Leilua could also fall into that category

Brayden Wiliame "didn't have a good start" in the NRL but the Dragons recruit is better prepared to make his mark the second time around.

After three seasons in the Super League, the 27-year-old has joined the club on a two-year deal and will put pressure on incumbent centres Euan Aitken and Tim Lafai.

Dragons centre Euan Aitken believes he can regain the form that once had him on the verge of State of Origin selection as he chases a new NRL deal.

The off-contract 24-year-old has received interest from other clubs but wants to remain with St George Illawarra despite a "frustrating" 2019 season.

St George Illawarra forward Jack de Belin could miss the entire 2020 NRL season regardless of the outcome of his sexual assault case, with the trial reportedly set to be delayed until August.

The shock development would all-but rule De Belin out for a second straight NRL season, with the Dragons’ last regular-season game scheduled for September 3.
De Belin has entered not guilty pleas on all five counts.

He is not eligible to play in the NRL until the conclusion of his case under the no fault stand-down policy, which gives the governing body the power to suspend players who are faces criminal charges that carry an 11-year prison sentence or higher.

This is shocking if true - could kill his career and he isn't even guilty of anything (yet).

Well if he wins the case, then he has the right to sue the NRL for damages.

Newcastle after Frizz ?
More than a few of our players have headed up the expressway especially when Wayne left.
Guess it comes down to how much money the knights are offering and how long he still has on his contract at the Dragons.
Both the Gong and Newcastle are beachside so apart from any family ties location wouldn't be an issue.
