On this week's episode with chat with former St George Five-Eighth Peter Coyne.
Peter spent two years at the Saints and played in the 1992 Grand Final.
In our chat we talk growing up with little brother Mark, success in the Brisbane 1st Grade competition, teething pains in the UK, his time at Saints including that dramatic semi-final against Newcastle and lots more.


Plus we bring you the latest Dragons news (Aaron Woods signing), Position Review (front row) and we tackle your fans questions. #redv
hey mate love the podcast however have to give my 2 cents worth... Last week you guys were saying the fan base should be more supportive and back the club etc and then your mate this week says woods is a waste of money and he could do the job for 100k... if youre going to be negative at least back it up with statistics that prove the point. Why would any player want to move to the club if he is being put down on such a powerful fan platform? if woods is coming on similar money to what ellis was on how can that possibly be a bad signing? just some constructive criticism to enhance the podcast :) keep it up.

In the fifth and final part of the missing rings documentary, we take a journey through the latter part of the Dragons 93 campaign. Upset defeats, semi final success and Grand Final heartbreak are all addressed. We talk that Jason Stevens break, the players response to another Grand Final defeat, and the positives that come from this story. Ultimately the pride and passion has been restored for the St George Dragons.
Insights from Noel Goldthorpe, Tony Priddle, Jeff Hardy, Rex Terp, Scott Gourley and Jason Donnelly.

Yeah that's a fair shout. Agree with what you're saying. I think in Johnny's defence I was prob more of the stance of supporting the club, but def should be getting behind the new players, regardless of what we might think about them. Cheers for listening.

I think both Jack and Johnny are pretty balanced. There is never anything disrespectful in what they say and there is definitely nothing personal in Johnny’s negativity toward the Woods signing. He is just giving his opinion and it’s an opinion many share. Pretty sure Jack said opinion was split on this one and I think he’s right.
Many think it’s a handy signing and many think it’s a poor one.
It’s a great podcast, particularly in the off-season! Interviews with ex-players are outstanding.

Thanks Jacky for the latest podcast. I enjoyed hearing Jamie's coaching philosophy and wish him all the best in his extended role. It was also great to hear Ashton Sims talk about his interesting back story and his obvious passion for the Dragons. Keep up the good work over the looooong off season!

Thanks for another good episode. I hope St George and WIN were listening when it was mentioned that it wouldn't hurt for each of them to sling a bit more money at the team than just the minimum $500,000 pa each they currently contribute. Loosen the purse strings boys!
