    Heath lestrange. Straightens the attack, and creates space for the backs. The Dragons winning streak started when they bought lestrange on for Rein against Canberra.

    Rein is a good dummy half runner, good defender, and he has been able to score tries against tired opposition. but his passing is slow and I think he's one of the reasons our attack often falters.

    You can add Dugan, Marshall and Widdop to the non attack also.

    Lol please...he has been in first grade for 4 years and has played hooker his whole career, when exactly is he expected to pick up the basics like consistently passing well from the ground? That has nothing to do with forwards. He has a good running game and good defence, inconsistent with decision making and below average passing. Cant wait forever for him to develop the basics.

    Rein has been one of our best this year..With a couple of big forwards we have signed for next season Mitch will have more opportunities and have an even better season in 16.

    People have been saying that pretty much every year of his career. It's like waiting for Godot.

    I was never banned. I just went on a lovely holiday to warmer climes in the northern hemisphere. Something I'd never consider during footy season in the old days, for fear of missing some great Dragons action. I suppose the good thing about our slide into mediocrity is that fear is gone

    We have a geat opportunity to secure a high quality hooker at half price. I'm sure Benji could talk Farah into joining the Dragons and faily confident the Tigers would take Rein in the deal. It's a no-brainer and so I would not be suprised to find that our recuritment people are already in talks with Farah's manager.

    The Dragons have tamed Dugan, Marshall and possibly Garvey. All it would take is a few extra clauses in Farah's contract onlong with a an attitude change and we would be a force to be reconned with next year.

    As has been mentioned ad nauseum, its not his ability to get a role on thats an issue. Our forwards have stood up this year and its has seen a big improvement in Reins game. However, his issues lie with the very basics - consistently passing to the receiver quickly and accurately, and making decisions under fatigue. After 4 years in first grade, he isnt just going to pick these up.

    The hell? Didnt he win us a game a few games back when benji was out?. Last game didnt he score a try and make plenty of meters? Man the guy cant win here. He has been one of our best (would argue the best after ah mau) player in the team all year. Nightengale and dugan have been down on form but no lets slam rein........

    I'm with most others. His running game is good, he is a tackling machine and his passing out of dummy half is absolutely atrocious.
