No wonder they were reluctant to resign Soward. He's a top quality signing. Well done Dragons.

Rangi said to be here in a week. Sounds an odd one.

Keeping in mind we do have Style out injured. How many halves do you need.

Thompson is a good buy IMO. Good tough forward - but can play in centres. Charli Runciman is going well too in the 20s. A good centre - along with Green.

With Fien going and Coops plus the cash we had - we should get one or two more. Penrith have done well - but not sure we'd have paid that for Jamie.

SJ, do you think they have purchased Widdop for FB or 5/8? I reckon if its 5/8 then perhaps they may offload Style. If at FB, it allows Style to play in his preferred position with Beale perhaps moving to centre (maybe alongside Thompson). What's your take on these signings?

Spells the end for Kyle @6 speculation. We may even offload him now.

His knees are pretty bad - but maybe not. It can take a while for them to get going - eg JT, Prince, Barba etc. All started slow - said to be too small, had multiple injuries etc.

I reckon he still has a spot - but has to get on the field.

Saints were set to ramp up negotiations to sign sacked Raiders fullback Josh Dugan until the troubled NRL star threw the deal into jeopardy with another off-field indiscretion. On the back of landing English international Gareth Widdop on a four-year deal worth $2.2 million, the Dragons were manoeuvring to accommodate Dugan into the Red V roster this season, provided the NRL was prepared to register the contract.

But an off-field altercation involving Dugan at a funeral in the national capital earlier this week is guaranteed to have St George Illawarra baulking at the NRL's resident problem child. In a major coup for St George Illawarra chief executive Peter Doust, the recruitment drive for 2014 remains a work in progress, with the club continuing talks to try to sign Feleti Mateo and Mitchell Aubusson.

The Dugan deal was a more immediate proposition, with St George Illawarra hopeful of lobbying the NRL as early as next week to register a contract for the sacked Raider. That was until revelations about Dugan being involved in a fight in Canberra earlier this week surfaced last night, throwing negotiations into the air.

I hope the Dragons can grab Mateo. He is a liability for the Warriors.

I could be wrong but the last few years the Dragons recruitment policy seem s to .....Appear to be trying to buy any name player but really ring the Raiders and ask them if they have any players they don't want :friend:

You're not wrong StG. We're as bad as Newcastle with our blokes from Canberra - or remember Brian Smith and his raids.

Do you guys really believe that the Dragons would be after ALL the players/coaches indicated by the media? Its really becoming a joke! It seems that any player manager looking to finalise a player or now coaches contract with an incumbent club will use the media to indicate that the 'cashed-up' dragons are also after the player/coach to perhaps drive up price. Some of the names indicated are so far removed from the team we are really trying to build. Sheens, Arthur, Aubusson, Carney, Mateo for goodness sake!
