    Last weeks news

    Dunno why, but I find reading last week's news strangely therapeutic. "PAUL McGregor woke up on Wednesday morning, turned over a new leaf in his calendar and waved goodbye to July." News.com "Dragons coach Paul McGregor has a plan to stop the Dragons slipping down the ladder" News.com "Paul...

    Who is our backline coach?

    Serious question, who looks after our backline in the coaching department? Because whoever it is is letting the side down something terrible. MacDonald, Lafai, have gone backwards from what they can and have produced at other clubs, Aitken still can't handle the high ball, Dugan still won't...

    Latest Betting

    For those who follow such things, St George-Illawarra have firmed in premiership betting following the nines. We have gone from $81 outsiders to $67 outsiders. Other big mover was Newcastle ($201 to $151). Manly, Tigers, Dogs and Sharks all dropped back in betting. Read into that what you will...

    Widdop so far in the four nations

    Anyone else watch the Poms against the Kiwis? I thought Widdop didn't play too badly, tried hard all game. He certainly played a lot more adventurously than he does for the Dragons. Kicked well except for the final drop goal attempt which admittedly was a long way out. Unfortunately he also gave...

    Have any players improved under MacGregor?

    I know the last thing this forum needs is another thread on Mary's coaching ability, but I'm doing it anyway. From what I've seen this year, practically every player has regressed under Mary's watch. From last year, Rein, Widdop, de Belin, Ah Mau, Marshall, all much worse. Matthews, Marketo...

    Dugan and MacGregor

    Anyone else read this on the NRL website? http://www.nrl.com/dugan-raring-to-go-after-friendly-fire/tabid/10874/newsid/100139/default.aspx The bit I found interesting was this: Dugan has recorded just one try assist this year but said coach Paul McGregor's game-plan dictates he keeps tucking...

    How to defeat the Dragons

    Here is what I reckon every opposition coach knows. DRAGONS DEFENCE Although the Dragons believe their defence is of a high standard, there are a number of weak points which can be exploited. 1. High ball to their right side. Aitken and KFFL have zero ability under a high ball and will...

    Reasons to be cheerful . . .

    1. OK, we are only two from six this year, but in 2007 and 2008 we only had one win after six games. And we finished 7th in 2008. 2. Coach has made enough changes to motivate the rest of the team, but not enough to upset their structures. Clearly a master stroke. 3. Our record against the...

    We need . . . Allan Langer

    Like most, I have suffered through the last two games, watching our rabble of an attack. I've checked out the blogs, listened to the experts, cast the runestones and read the entrails of a goat. Then at 3:00 am it hit me. We need Allan Langer or his equivalent at the back, telling the team what...
