    St George Illawarra have announced that winger Mikaele Ravalawa has re-signed with the Dragons for a further three seasons.

    The Fijian international will now remain with the Red V until at least the end of the 2023 NRL Telstra Premiership season.

    Ravalawa joined the Dragons last season and has scored 14 tries in 23 first grade appearances to date; he is currently the club's equal leading try-scorer (three) in 2020.

    FMD 3 years what a joke.
    He is one game away from being dropped again.
    He was dropped last year and then dropped from reserve grade for not turning up to training.
    Fight to retain him, were the Fiji Silktails after him for Massy Cup.

    Good signing, plenty of raw talent there. Still only 22!

    Saab needs to fill that other wing position

    They probably mistyped high maintenance.

    That’s not important, what’s really important is, is he a good bloke?

    Meanwhile Saab can't get a run and wants a release truly baffling.

    I hope they are at least planning on moving Rava into the forwards because he damn sure ain't a winger.

    What f**king club in history has announced a signing and included a line highlighting the players deficiencies.
    "Last weekend I made a few errors under the high ball but I know I can be better."

    I’m thinking they are just shoring up their backup wingers to make some big name plays. I actually would rather use what we have in say 1.Dufty 2.Ramsey. 3Wiliame.4.Lomax 5.Saab and spend the money saved on the Fox to get a new coach.

    I’m actually happy with this although hopefully the Contract is a modest value.

    Rava can work on those errors and be a beast at only 22 yrs old. He and Saab should be the wingers long term.

    I’m sure it’s a three year deal for a total of $450,000 ($150,000 per year).
    Anything more and I might just need to quote Possum.
