    The 2018 NRL Telstra Premiership is mere months away for the St George Illawarra Dragons.

    The Red V will begin their campaign with a season-opening clash against the Brisbane Broncos at Jubilee Oval on Thursday, March 8.

    The stakes couldn't be higher for Dragons recruit Ben Hunt, who will likely face his former Brisbane side in his debut game for the Red V.

    Hunt is one of five recruits vying for a place in the Dragons' 17 come Round 1 - and the first of which Dragons.com.au will delve into the life and times of over the first week of January.

    Hear from Ben in the above video ahead of his maiden season with the Dragons.

    The nightmare scenario all 16 NRL clubs must avoid in search of premiership success



    St George Illawarra Dragons
    – Widdop steps out of the limelight

    When Benji Marshall arrived at the Dragons Gareth Widdop seemed to shrink back into his shell and their halves combination failed as a result; the same can’t happen with Ben Hunt. Hunt shapes as the half St George Illawarra have craved for a decade but the unknown is how his arrival will impact on Widdop’s influence. After an ordinary 2016 season Widdop re-established himself as one of the best five-eighths in the game in 2017 because he was the dominant half alongside the likes of Josh McCrone and Kurt Mann. It will be much more a shared responsibility next season but Dragons fans need Widdop to maintain that same aggressive approach in attack or face fading into the background.

    2018 Fresh Face: Darren Nicholls

    St George Illawarra halfback Darren Nicholls has joined the Dragons on a two-year deal ahead of the 2018 Telstra Premiership season.

    Nicholls began his senior football journey in the Holden Cup at the Wests Tigers and after a few years in France has featured in the first grade squads of the Broncos, Rabbitohs and Panthers.

    Last season, Nicholls skippered Penrith's Intrust Super Premiership outfit to grand final and NRL State Championship success.

    While he is yet to make his first grade debut, the time is now for Nicholls as he approaches his first season in the Red V jumper.

    Did anyone see the article on JDB in the Telecrap this morning?
    All this bullshit about him bulking up and carrying extra weight so as to be ready for SOO selection and in the end it turns out he is talking about 1 absolute maximum 2 kgs and he then states that will help him break the line more often.
    Run at the line and don't look for the back turn and offload and that will help you more than a bloody lousy kg.
    Honestly Jack stick to playing footy and keep away from the papers as it is all just about talking crap.

    The article's all anacoluthon and rabid non sequiturs - indicative of a self-adsorbed personality who listens only to his ego's mindless echo. They never 'learn' because they never truly listen - to anyone!
    It's a scrambled brain with no one at home.

    Pity the youngsters!

    Bird got lucky & fled the coup - Lomax, Dufty & Field will eventually be developed elsewhere as Mc NoGreyMatter has again surrounded himself comfortably with Mc Crone-like-journeymen-hacks-and-those-who-toe-the-line FFS

    Nothing learned at all

    Such indescribable bullshit fed by an idiot who scores an E on every coaching descriptor known!

    This article exemplifies everything that is wrong with Club admin.

    Our head coach is after three years as "head coach" still on his training wheels.

    He is clueless.

    My interpretation of his dribble is as follows:

    Got it right in 2015, somehow lost the formula going forward in 2016,2017.

    New quality Senior players will ensure we don't choke when it counts.

    I am hopeless, but no one seems to have noticed, so hell looks like I have this job for as long as I like.

    By the time I have seen out this contract I will be a veteran coach in demand.

    CEO and the Board that voted in favour of extending his contract early in the season should all resign effective immediately.

    In case you haven't worked it out yet Paul, we lost Packer & Dugan.

    Yes we signed Graham and Hunt.

    My concern is that your tactical ineptitude will reduce Hunt within 6-8 weeks from gun FG half back to a confused clueless Reggies half back who assumes the foetal position every time you lead a team meeting.

    Says it all that Bennett didn't retain you in any capacity Paul.

    Please shut the door as you leave.

    St George Illawarra prop Mitchell Allgood has signed a one-year deal with the Dragons ahead of the 2018 season.

    Allgood returns to the NRL after three seasons spent in the English Super League having played for Hull KR and Wakefield Trinity.

    Prior to his overseas departure, the 28-year-old played 70 NRL games for the Parramatta Eels and featured for City Origin back in 2012.

    2018 Fresh Face: James Graham

    St George Illawarra prop James Graham has signed with the Dragons for three years ahead of the 2018 Telstra Premiership season.

    Graham is not yet done proving himself to the rugby league world despite playing over 350 first grade games across the NRL and English Super League.

    After eight grand final appearances across a combined 15 seasons at St Helens and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, you'd argue Graham's career was made.

    But the veteran England Test representative isn't content on resting on his laurels.

    Had to look twice at the photo.
    I thought old ‘blue’ was naked there for a moment!
    The red face blends in too well with the shirt.
    Notice to kit supplier - Add extra white to J. Graham shirts and gear.

    I have patiently been waiting several months for these pictures. It's almost surreal seeing these guys finally as part of our team, and very glad to have Widdop back too!
