    That's harsh it was his kids teacher who has covid-19 there's no way in the world that the Bulldogs could have seen that coming Agree with a lot of other things in regards to the club and the NRL you cannot blame the NRL for this I think they did a great job

    I feel so awful for Ben Hunt.

    He's a quality player who has been thrown into a role that is not suited to his playing style, then made to be a scapegoat when it doesn't work out.

    I truly believe he's a natural 5/8 (or even a hooker), who when you take the pressure of game-managing off his shoulders, will absolutely shine. He basically carried the Broncos to that Grand Final in 2015 when he was sharing duties with Milford. All of his best games over the years have been when he gets to pick and choose his moments to strike, not when he's forced to make something out of nothing. Instinct is his greatest asset, not organisation.
    I have a lot of faith in the Clune/Hunt halves combination, I think they'll compliment each other beautifully.

    As for Corey Norman, he's a f**king nobody. I don't care how much talent is in there... When you're 29 and have f**k all to show for all of that "talent" you possess, then you're a show-pony and have no right to claim marquee player status. The fact that Hunt has been dropped in favour of Norman is utter rubbish.

    Benching Hunt is a classic case of a bad carpenter blaming his tools. The coach should have dropped Norman and Graham I’m afraid all he’s doing is rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    Townsend and Fifita back for the Gummies. Will be dangerous.
    I like Hunt seemingly coming on at dummy half. Difficult days. Mary has to make changes to try to get results yet constant changes make building combinations difficult.
    Have to hope the Derby motivates the boys to rip in

    St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has amended his squad to 19 ahead of the Dragons' Round 5 clash against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Campbelltown Stadium on Sunday, June 14.

    Ben Hunt will revert back to the bench for the Dragons, with Matt Dufty and Corey Norman starting at fullback and five-eighth respectively.

    Trent Merrin and James Graham have also swapped between the bench and lock. Jacob Host is the new face on the interchange.

    Jackson Ford and Jason Saab join Issac Luke and Korbin Sims as the players to make way from the initial 21-man squad.

    Tariq Sims is out after suffering a wrist injury in the Dragons' last start loss to the Bulldogs. He has been replaced in the back row by Tyrell Fuimaono. Sims's return to play timeframe currently sits at the four to six-week mark.

    Brayden Wiliame also suffered a calf injury against the Bulldogs and has too been ruled out. Euan Aitken will start with Matt Dufty coming on to the interchange as a result.

    Tyson Frizell (150 Dragons games) and James Graham (50 Dragons games) will also celebrate respective milestones against the Sharks. Jason Saab and Korbin Sims are the new faces on the reserves list.

    Much better balanced side with a bench that will actually be used.

    Come on gents today is the day we shall remember when the Dragons defy the odds and romp home against their old nemesis the Cronulla Sharks .

    Put on couple of bob on them ( just to be sure ) and should things turn ugly , then always remember - the tele is within boot range .
