Don't mean to sound like a broken record, or it's online equivalent but FFS, Hunt was not our best player last season! Very far from it.
How to make the NRL’s bottom 9 from 2023 great again
How it came to thisAnother season of disappointment for St George Illawarra, who didn’t start out on the right foot. There was little hope for their season and poor results cost Anthony Griffin his job after 11 rounds, causing skipper Ben Hunt to threaten to walk out on his contract. They finished with just five wins and a lot of questions about how to fix the mess.
Reason for hopePremiership-winning coach Shane Flanagan could be the man to turn things around after five seasons without making the finals as a club. There’s plenty of rising stars on the books and he knows how to get the best out of young talent.
Key issuesHunt has been the club’s best player over the past few years and the Dragons need him to buy into Flanagan’s coaching to get the best out of the whole team. For now he’s agreed to see out his deal but keeping him engaged in the club will be the biggest issue.
