    Mate during the coaches preview yesterday Young said and i quote " if he gets his opportunity it wont be for long ",whether or not that's how it plays out i don't know but those are the words that came out of his mouth...

    No, I’d say that he’s doing okay, nothing special..

    I say potential star as he does have potential based on his lower grade performances..

    But so did Matt Mundine..

    I think you need to watch the games again.

    Last week we had all 4 bench players come on in the first half, two weeks prior the 4th bench player came on with 30 mins to go..

    He’s put Sims & fuimaono on with 10 mins to go in his other games, but the other 3 bench players all made it on in the first half..

    So yes, I think you’re being a pessimistic wet blanket in your approach to the interchange bench as your figures are incorrect.

    Late mail: Round 19 v Knights

    St George Illawarra interim coach Dean Young has finalised his team ahead of the Dragons' Women in League Round clash against the Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium on Sunday, September 20.

    Eddie Blacker and Jayden Sullivan are the final two players to drop out of Tuesday's initial squad after Euan Aitken and Adam Clune were ruled out with hamstring injuries.

    Brayden Wiliame returns to play for the first time since Round 4, while Tariq Sims will start in a reshuffle that will see Jackson Ford, Cameron McInnes and Ben Hunt play lock, hooker and halfback respectively.

    The Dragons will contest the Knights in the sixth-annual Alex McKinnon Cup, a contest that the Red V have never lost. McKinnon debuted for St George Illawarra in 2011 before heading to Newcastle the year following.

    McKinnon's career was tragically cut short in the early rounds of 2014 after a tackle gone wrong resulted in the now 28-year-old becoming a quadriplegic.

    Max Feagai has been named for his NRL debut from the interchange and will become St George Illawarra player No. 236. Billy Brittain (concussion) wasn't named.

    This game just got a bit more interesting.

    McGuiness back to hooker and Hunt to half both, in their best positions, T Sims to second row and Norman at six, add no pressure.

    I'm looking forward to see how we go.

    As always, go the Red V.

    I really wanted to like Young as a coach but picking a guy on the bench and deliberately planning to give him minimal game time is monumentally brain dead. Waste of a bench spot. Proves the club were right to pick a coach who hasn’t been infected by the stink McGregor has left in the place over the last 7 years.

    Fitz and Simms both to have top games . Be interesting to see if the forwards do make some yardage against the Knights pack . If they can then our talented young backs will have plenty of room to roam .
