    Let’s have some fun.
    So much rumour swirling around that may indirectly affect Dragons that I thought I’d have some fun picking some outcomes to come through over next 3-4 weeks - feel free to join in.

    1. Walters to Broncos
    2. Green to QLD SOO
    3. Griffin to Dragons
    4. Foran to Dragons - Norman out
    5. Sailor to Broncos/Titans

    4. Foran to knights. Has a link to Pearce as they both played junior football for Asquith. No one will touch Norman
    5. Agree

    1. Bennett gets a three year contract extension at Souths
    2. Bronco's look at the success they previously had with an ex Souths coach, decide an ex Souths assistant coach would work even better and sign Demetriou to a five year deal.
    3. Nathan Brown takes the Warriors to a wooden spoon, convinces Warriors board it was a necessary part of the rebuilding process
    4. MacGregor given assistant role as NSW SOO coach in charge of attack. NSW fail dismally, with several players complaining of nausea from smell of fresh paint in changerooms.
    5. Flanagan leaves Dragons, takes up assistant coach role at Wests Tigers or Doggies, citing difficulties with the long commute.

    Not game to predict new coach at St George-Illawarra. Don't want to jinx it either way.

    Ol' Griffin has his plaudids, but oh my days, his press conferences would put a glass eye to sleep.

    Hopefully he's more engaging IRL.

    1. Dragons announce international recruitment firm engaged, at a fee rumored to be in the millions, to appoint coach for 2021.
    2. A large field of applicants is vetted down to three: Bennett, Bellamy and Griffin.
    3. In a shock development Dean Young, who did not apply for the role is announced as coach.
    4. Former coach Paul McGregor is appointed to the new position of Director of Coaching with specific responsibility for junior development, recruitment and painting of the change room.
    5. CEO Ryan Webb defends the decision, saying "Dean bleeds red and white and is steeped in Dragon's culture. As for Paul coming on board, he brings a wealth of coaching expertise to pass on to the next generation. This is the start of a new golden era for the club."

    In other news the Dragons' League Unlimited "Front Row Forum" site has been offline since the announcement, following what is believed to be overloading of the site's servers due to unprecedented heavy traffic.

    Now those gentlemen would certainly pull the Dragons out off the quagmire that they have been stuck in for the last 7 years .

    Each candidate knows their business and of course also have both NRL contacts in the right places and even some political muscle to help move things along .

    Maybe Saints can get in the doggies ears about slim shady now that Blake Green will miss half of 2021. Best chance to drop the bag of potatoes from our club. Can see Saints signing Aiden Tolman after missing out on Christian Welch and selling it as a “big” signing.
