    With the All Stars game happening tonight, it got me thinking of some of the great Indigenous Dragons we've had over the years.
    I've come up with my all time Indigenous Dragons team with players that represented St.George and St.George illawarra.
    Plenty of points in this team!

    2.Ricky Walford
    3.Lee Hookey
    4.Anthony Mundine
    5.Nathan Blacklock
    6.Andrew Walker
    7.Jamie Soward
    8.Josh Kerr
    9.Jeff Hardy
    10.Tony Hearne
    11.Gordan Tallis
    12.Joel Thompson
    13.Daniel Wagon
    14.Wes Patten
    15.George Rose
    16.Robbie Simpson
    17.Wendell Sailor

    Have I missed anyone?

    Didn't follow the Steelers too closely back in the day, but would be interested in seeing a combined Steelers / St.George Illawarra team

    Speaking of indigenous players, awesome offload by Kerr to setup the first try.

    Indeed. His lateral agility looks way better carrying a few less donuts...

    In the 9s final he absolutely belted Taumololo once too, it really rocked him back. Was great signs.

    Wasn't it Timm they had concerns about lateral movement? Are you sure you don't have them mixed up. Never once have I heard he had issues with it except a few recent posts by yourself on here.

    Na not mixed up.

    Always thought it was his only real weakness.

    When he was heavier though.

    Well done to him for stripping it off.

    Reckon it's done wonders for his game.

    Starting prop for round 1...

    Blacker is a giant.

    Ivan Drago-like.

    Off the bench with Vaughan & Kerr starting.

    Would have to be the biggest 3 props in the same team, in the comp, surely?

    Fair enough he looks better no doubt but he certainly wasn't fat last season. Im not being a smartarse. But every man and his dog on here and some commentators even were saying this was Timm's reason for non selection last year, that he had no lateral movement. I though you must have had them mistaken. I disagree I just think he needed to run a bit harder. Even in game 1 Indigenous last season he scored a slashing try and he was always been pretty mobile. Not wanting to get into a debate about it we all have our opinion.

    Indeed we do.

    I never saw enough of Timm to know his game but I do know Kerr is much lighter and hence more mobile than he has been and I reckon his on line defence will benefit...
