    If he wants to relocate to NZ then that’s fair enough but if he signs with another Sydney team & we miss out on him I think Millward should be fired. AFB would be a massive signing for us.

    I posted something on the signings thread which I think is interesting regarding Christian Welch.

    Young officially tells Dragons he’ll depart club at season’s end

    Interim Dragons coach Dean Young has told the club he will depart at season’s end, after 17 years of connection to the St George Illawarra club.

    According to multiple reports, Young informed the club of his exit on Wednesday afternoon.

    He took over the top job after Paul McGregor was shown the door, but was ultimately beaten to the long-term head coaching position by Anthony Griffin who will pick up the reigns next season.

    Griffin has already started putting things in place, reportedly telling assistants Shane Flanagan and James Shepherd they wouldn’t have jobs at the club next year. However, he had hoped Young would remain with the Red V.

    36-year-old Young, a premiership winner with the Dragons as a player in 2010, is expected to take up an assistant role with a rival club.

    He has been linked to the Cowboys under incoming coach Todd Payten, and the Knights — whom the Dragons face on Sunday — under Adam O’Brien.

    Young has had a tough run since stepping up to the top job, winning just one of four games.

    Good luck to him. He’s been a good servant of the club. His heart was in the right place.

    Heard some rumours today:
    - Young 100% gone (now confirmed)
    - Young chased by Cowboys, Raiders, Chooks and Tigers

    and most concerning:
    - Tigers have sounded out McInnes - they think McInnes would be very interested if Young joins Tigers.

    And in Griffin:
    - He will look to move Norman to 14 and if successful looking to moving him to left edge either as centre or second row. Apparently similar to how Tyrone May is playing.

    Again all rumours but who knows...

    I'd prefer that Norman not be moved to left edge but left right out.

    I still believe Griffin WILL NOT go w Hunt/Clune combo next year...no chance...too risky not in his first year of coaching the club...he would be looking for a certain solution at 5/8 and Norman is definitely not that - I'm really thinking that Maloney may be a real option here ...I just can't see Griffin taking any risks ...he's actually showing his cards already by trying to lure hardened pro like Mcguire ...you can add Maloney to that list IMO..

    You may be right about Maloney mickey . As you have said Griffin won’t dilly-dally around with the current much vaunted Dragon spine . He will start afresh with a combination that already has runs on the board .

    I myself would not mind Maloney in the halves for 1 season to cement a base from which the Dragons attack can flow . And Maloney with his bags of tricks is the perfect individual to do this . Certainly getting on in years , but he would do wonders for the Big Red V in a 12 month period - he could possibly be our version of Mr. C. Smith from the Storm .

    If 850k is the real figure I'd pass. I'd reckon you could get welch and Hetherington for close to that

    Though honestly we need a Afb. Wonder what junior Paulo is on. He's stocks have risen I'd rather agitate that

    You could easily get Welch and Hetherington and have about 200k leftover.

    Great news ! The Dragons now have a player with plenty of size and bulk .
    All 17 stone and 6’ 3” of him .

    Now for Griffin to instill some Dragon fire into him - and the other members of the pack .

    He doesn’t even hardly run the ball at 6 let alone in forwards.

    I
    I feel he will go Hunt/Norman it’s just a feeling but I feel he will have a point to prove that he can get them going again as a combo, particularly Hunt.
