I never liked Aitken off the bench and he was one of our best against the Raiders. It will be interesting to see if he is retained because surely Lafai is let go so I’m not sure the club will let both centres leave. They should make a play for Steve Masters who went to South’s from the Dragons but is unlikely to play NRL this year

D-Day for Paul McGregor comes this Sunday

Sorry but I disagree. Saints paid overs for him as everyone knows so of course there is the expectation on him but I wouldn’t call it a failure as you seem to suggest. I’d pay around 800k a season for Hunt as a hooker

Most powerful club based on only 2 seasons of statistics not sure if agree with that but each to their own.

How is Hunt a failure? Bought as a halfback but moved to hooker where he plays his best footy doesn’t seem like a failure to me as hooker is probably the most important position these days.

You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to comment on your article with an opinion of my own. If you cannot handle criticism perhaps you shouldn’t submit articles. You’ve said Dufty could play halfback but have not given any particular reason apart from the fact he’s in good form. He has no kicking game, no organising skills and has never played halfback before, all things which can easily be found out. I just dont see why Dufty would play halfback when he is going so well at fullback. You’ve written an article and I’ve provided my opinion. No need to be insulted just learn to take feedback and offer up more substantial arguments or you will get found out on this Forum.

Matt Dufty to halfback for the Dragons?

Very dumb idea why would Dufty move to halfback? His passing game has improved but that’s it, he can’t kick, can’t organize and has no other playmaker skills. The author either doesn’t watch the game or has very limited knowledge of it.

Matt Dufty to halfback for the Dragons?

Aside from that oversight, the Dragons are part owned by the Gordon family with a net worth of about $800m. If you are going to analyse teams you probably should know a bit more than what you’ve shown here which is a couple of sentences copied from Wikipedia

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 3

Yes, both Kogarah and WIN have many issues that keep crowds down, especially families. No parking, outdated food and drink facilities, the hill at WIN which exposes you to the wind off the ocean. Get the train down to Wollongong and you’re still a few km from the ground.

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 3

Dragons have won 16. Outside of the 11 in a row they won in 1941, 1949, 1977, 1979 and 2010

Who is the most powerful NRL club? Part 3

Untried, untested but you are quick to judge him. He’s a serious talent being wasted by Mary

The five players the Bulldogs should target for 2021

Mary should just start Hunt at hooker and move McInness to Lock to save an interchange. Bring in Sailor to give eighth and demote Norman to the bench or even out of the 17

NRL Round 8 teams: Friend back for Roosters, Broncos drop Oates

He’s locked away for another 6 years. He’s not going anywhere

The five players the Bulldogs should target for 2021

I wouldn’t go near Milford but the others are good options. The Dogs pose zero threat out wide and probably have the worst roster in the NRL so need to open the chequebook. A good outside back and a decent forward to start with. But honestly who out of those players would want to go to the Dogs? Fifita could choose any club.

The five players the Bulldogs should target for 2021

First half from the Dragons was good but should have put more points in the Roosters. Second half coughed up too much ball to compete. Sailor should be the 6 but will only get a run if Norman is injured or suspended as is the Mary way

Why the NRL can't compete with the AFL in Sydney

You do realize crowds aren’t the only indicating factor?

Why the NRL can't compete with the AFL in Sydney

They will be too complacent and Saints will make it 3 in a row

If Tedesco doesn’t play I give the Dragons some hope. Brett Morris will fill in admirably bit he’s no Teddy

The Roar’s NRL expert tips and predictions: Round 7

You praise Browns achievements at Saints but the club should have won a comp in that time. Brown was not the coach they needed. He went ok in Super League, an interior league and struggled at the Knights. He’s not what the Dragons need

Would St George Illawarra consider bringing back Nathan Brown?

He played well against two of the most disappointing teams in 2020. I’ll wait until he is prominent against the best teams. What exact is he leading as you allude to in the article?

Where are all the Latrell haters now?

Dragons were fantastic albeit against a terrible Sharks side who offered little resistance but I’ll take it. Ben Hunt had his best game in a long time and must surely be the hooker moving forward with Sailor coming into the 6 jersey and Norman off the bench or left right out I’m ok with either. Onto the Titans and hopefully another win and some momentum coming into a tough few weeks

Eight talking points from NRL Round 5

Been that way a long time and Rugby League is still number one. Your argument is invalid. Expansion means to grow. You don’t grow by adding another team in Brisbane. You grow by adding a team in a new market

Brisbane’s Western Corridor cannot be ignored in NRL expansion

Why do you need a weekly game in Brisbane? Who says a new team will get as many fans? Better to have one high rating team than one high rating team and one mediocre one. Perth before Brisbane

Brisbane’s Western Corridor cannot be ignored in NRL expansion

If the NRL is serious about expansion the only option is Perth. Putting yet another team in QLD doesn’t expand the game. Put a team in WA and further down the track, SA.

Brisbane’s Western Corridor cannot be ignored in NRL expansion

Mary the extension was made under the previous CEO Brian Johnston. The new boss had nothing to do with it.

McGregor's got to go - but he shouldn't go alone
