    The old boys culture has really held the club back.

    Here's a few thoughts. Item 1 is major, the others are probably minor considerations.
    1. We will only attract above average players when we have an above average coach, like Bennett.
    2. The Wollongong factor may put off some Sydney based players from signing if they have an alternative.
    3. The fact we have no serious home ground (or rather 5 different grounds we call home - 6 if you include Mudgee) might lead some to consider we are not fair dinkum.
    4. I have heard mention we have the most critical fans. That may put some players off.

    If they are a reject and have no alternative they seem happy enough to sign.

    St.George Illawarra fans wander around in aimless circles in utter disbelief that their once fire breathing dragon has been reduced to a mere skeleton . This has been attributed to the total ineptitude of the current ( long term ) board .

    Seriously if you can get 1 NRL game under your belt for another club why wouldn't you join the Dragons. You will get first choice over all the juniors at Saints. You go straight in front f the queue and all you need to do is be a good bloke. Even if you play from the bench in your previous club you get preferred treatment. He is looking for the next Latimore or McCrone to annoy the fans. That is a player to waste a bench spot.
