In 2019 the St.George Illawarra Dragons severely underperformed finishing 15th on the ladder, the lowest the club has finished since Paul McGregor has been head coach.

Their Canterbury Cup side tho finished minor premiers with a side brimming with promising young talent that has proven they’re ready for the jump to first grade.

The club has a plethora of representative stars and one of the best teams on paper, however are in need of a shakeup. It could be a select few of those young players from reserve grade who act as the spark that will light the fire in the Dragons’ belly and see them reach their true potential.

This point was further proven in the 2020 NRL 9’s tournament as the Red V finished runners up with the likes of Tristan Sailor and Cody Ramsey spearheading the club’s run to the final which would lead to Ramsey being named in the team of the tournament.

It’s crazy to think that the future stars don’t end there, Adam Clune, Jason Saab and Indigenous All-Star Josh Kerr have all shown that they are ready for first grade.

Now it’s up to Paul McGregor to give them the crack they deserve.
