St George Illawarra Dragons

Josh Coric
: A young middle from Albion Park who was also a part of that SG Ball premiership winning team back in 2019. Given the depth and experience of Dragons pack that has added likes of Aaron Woods, George Burgess and Francis Molo, Coric will have to be patient for his chance at NRL. But he has time on his side and a contract until 2024, so the club obviously sees him as a part of their succession plan.

Jackson Shereb: Another to graduate from that gun SG Ball side, this bloke plays backrow and looks a real athlete. Big, powerful with good speed and skills, he was really impressive in his appearances in NSW Cup before suffering a knee injury.

Connor Muhleisen: A tough little hooker who was the SG Ball captain and has enough speed to cause some headaches out of dummy half. Won’t go onto a development contract until 2023 but looks to be the future No 9 given he’s the only internal long term hooking option at the moment beyond Andrew McCullough.

Shalom O’Ofou: A hard running, tough tackling middle forward who looks really promising with a style not unlike Tyson Frizell. Still only 19 but played 11 NSW Cup games in 2021 and goes onto a development contract next season.

Jaiyden Hunt: A no-nonsense prop who won’t win many headlines but at 23 you can’t help but admire his dedication and determination to get his crack at the NRL. After starting out at the Easts Tigers in Brisbane, he played under 20s for Melbourne before returning to the Tigers where the Dragons signed him on a train-and-trial contract. He then ended up getting four NRL games this year and it’s a credit to him that Anthony Griffin has kept him despite the arrival of some big name front rowers.

Luckily these kind of lists are usually full of shit. Hunt was rejected by Melbourne then Wests Tigers and now he is one of our leading rookies? That mustn't be true.

The first 4 of those sound good. Hopefully the 5th is a late bloomer.
