    He was up against Bryce Cartwright.

    Ma'u or Moeroa will be his opposite this week. Lets see how he runs then.

    Paul Vaughan needs a massive rap as well.
    Two great games out of three.
    Has great speed for a big man, plenty of carries, hits hard in defence and can run a line.
    Well Done big fella and happy u r wearing the Big Red V :thumbsup:

    As I've said previously, he's fast becoming my favourite player.

    He has "given it" to CBR and had something to prove coming to the Dragons, love it.

    Vaughan...a man on a mission with something to prove and taking the rest of the pack along with him.

    Love the injection of him and Packer early in the second half for their second stint.

    Rip and tear boys.

    Always had a wrap on him & was happy we signed him.Was disappointed in some comments when he first signed saying he's not that good etc but so far he's shown enough. Can't wait until we play the raiders as i'm sure he'll be pumped.

    Awesome stuff Vaughan. Dominating the premiers

    He seems to really be benefiting from the change of scenery away from Canberra.

    I think Vaughan gives boys like JDB some much needed momentum and confidence. The Dragons showed again that they are a strong pack of forwards.

    Can not fault Vaughan, just hammers each run and leading the forwards well. And i'll say a big second shout out has to go Ah Mau sweet meter eater!

    I've said it before and i'll say it here again, anyone who thought Vaughan was a reserve grader has nfi.
    He will go close to being buy of the season for any club this year.

    Vaughan is our best buy since a bald wild tearaway prop who used to love punching male models in the face.

    He's been enormous for us for far this season. It's no mistake the game we lost he was shut down.

    That run off JDB short ball in the first half was magic. His second half run was almost as good. Dude just enters beast mode. Massive difference when he and packer are off the paddock

    All the forwards stood out yesterday. The Sharks have an ageing pack and little size apart from Fifita. Gallen, Heightington and Lewis are still good but past their prime imo. We need to ensure that they do not poach our forwards who are off contract.

    Gallen and Fifita were outgunned last night. Our pack is second to none now.
    Vaughan was a massive recruit and him and the other bookend plus our hooker are going to crush any team.
    Plus we have JDB who is awsome and Frizelle and Thompson.
    That pack should dominate if they all stay fit.

    Vaughan is a super signing

    Has added some additional starch to the pack

    Ah Mau has lifted his game

    Packer and Sims are firing

    Defence and moral are up, well done recruitment. Very happy with this buy !!!!!!!!!!

    The pack has mongrel in spades now.

    If only we had a pack like this when Willie Mason shot his mouth off about how soft we were.

    Willie said, "where are your props?" You got no props you c****. lol Mason was only pointing out the obvious. We finally have a decent pair of props. I also like Simms in the middle too. He is a goer. I will also add that when Mason did say that we had no props, we did also have a reputation as being a soft pack. That reputation is now a thing of the past. Again it should not have taken our recruitment team so long rectify the problem, they never should have even allowed to get to the state that it was. Oh hang on a sec, they signed Dan Hunt up to a big money long term contract and that didn't work out. lol
