The St George Illawarra Dragons became the NRL’s first joint venture club after a merger between the Illawarra Steelers and the St George Dragons. After losing the 1999 Grand Final to Melbourne in the inaugural year, the Dragons’ faithful endured several years of heartache, before master coach Wayne Bennett steered the club to the premiership in 2010. In recent years however, the club has failed to regain premiership form.
In 2014 the franchise finished a lowly 11th place in the regular season and consequently failed to progress to the NRL finals.
