DRAGONS' PRESEASON CHALLENGE​

  • Rd 1: Dragons v Rabbitohs at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Sydney (Saturday, February 17)
  • Rd 2: Dragons v Tigers at Glen Willow Oval, Mudgee (Saturday, February 24)

  • Round 1: Titans v Dragons at Cbus Super Stadium, Gold Coast (Saturday, March 9)

    Club news: Finally, some good news for the Dragons on the injury front. Fullback Tyrell Sloan continues to impress on the training paddock after undergoing ankle surgery on a syndesmosis injury he suffered in the Koori Knockout as well as a broken thumb. The 21-year-old worked well in full contact during a scrimmage at Kogarah over the weekend, which will come a huge relief to fans. The club is still reeling after Corey Allan and Ronald Volkman both suffered season-ending injuries last week.

Blocka wants to be in the conversation for Origin. Good luck to him but I doubt it. Even though NSW does seem to have a shortage of really good props. Payne Haas and then...... who is next?
Blake is nowhere near Origin. Stupid comment from him.

Not a bad interview. He throws "rep games" out there but mostly he wants to help the Dragons be successful. Like the rep games part is an afterthought.

If he can help us enough not to collect our 1st wooden spoon then he's done enough

Remember when Mary used to endlessly talk about the year the Dragons made the finals with him as coach? As though it was like 4 or 5 GF wins in a row. Now a pass is to not win the spoon.

Dragons, Sea Eagles stars to clash in closed-door scrimmage

The launch pad for some of the most anticipated players and combinations from the Sea Eagles and Dragons will be unveiled in a serious hit-out behind closed doors

The special scrimmage session to be held in 10-days will be the launch pad for some of the most anticipated players and crucial combinations from both clubs prior to the 2024 season.

The 60-minute workout will be held behind closed doors at Narrabeen on Friday, February 2 and follows on from this time last year when both clubs organised a similar hitout against each other.

The contest will provide new-look Dragons halves Ben Hunt and Kyle Flanagan with their first-look at playing under pressure, while promising fullback Tyrell Sloan will also take part as he chases the St George-Illawarra no.1 jumper.

Manly coach Anthony Seibold and Dragons coach Shane Flanagan said the hitout would be “game simulated” and a “step up from pre-season training.”

“Flanno was the driving force behind it last year when he was here with us as an assistant and we saw some benefits, so we thought it would be a good idea to do it again,” Seibold said.

“It was played in good spirits last year with a focus on the defender, particularly the third man into the tackle looking after the attacking player.

Flanagan said the bulk of his NRL side, including Zac Lomax, Jack Bird, Moses Suli, Jayd’n Sua, Blake Lawrie and Jacob Liddle will participate in the hit-out.

“The boys have been running plays and calls at each other all year, so to throw these plays at another NRL side, different opposition at this time of the year, it’s really beneficial for everyone,” Flanagan said.

“It’s a good opportunity for combinations in an environment that is as close to a game.

“I’ll use around 21 players and for about 50-minutes we’ll run our best 17 to 20 players.”
