St George Illawarra Dragons

St George Illawarra DragonsThe 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 without Bennett at the helm.

In 2015 the Dragons scraped into the finals in 8th spot, and were subsequently knocked out in a thrilling elimination final against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs which was decided in golden-point.

The 2016 season saw the Dragons slip further down the ladder as they finished 11th, winning 10 games and losing 14.
