Yeh I want to see more of green too, he looks like a good prospect, he has got a good build for a center too. He does look a bit green now though.
Does anyone know his nickname. I have got a few ideas, Bluey, Greeny, Red, Souths or Bunny, due to his red hair and Green last name.

The way we're going we'll have a plethora of centres/backs. We don't really need Stewart - and he's a bit old too.

I'm still of the belief we need a good half - unless we put Style there - and if so, one or two top running forwards.

THE season is almost certainly over for St George Illawarra utility Kyle Stanley who has suffered a serious knee injury in Sunday’s 18-10 win over Cronulla.

In his return match form a hamstring injury Stanley was named at five-eighth, replacing Jamie Soward who was ruled out after suffering a back spasm in their final training session.
Stanley injured his right knee in the sixth minute of the match – a fresh knee injury for the 21-year-old who has twice suffered serious injuries to his left knee.
Dragons high performance unit manager Andrew Gray said the medical staff first thought the injury was a minor meniscus issue, however scans on Monday are expected to confirm a serious injury, possibly an ACL.
“He’s had a high velocity twisting movement to his knee and that is always a concern,” Gray said.
“We’re relucent to say too much more... any high velocity twisting injury there is a potential for an ACL injury.”
Stanley was stretchered off the field before later returning the sideline on crutches to watch the game.
Nathan Fien replaced Stanley in the halves however missed the final three minutes of the game due to a knee joint injury.
However, he is not expected to miss any football as a result.
“He’s got a bit of a stiff knee and he’s just given that a bit of a twist,” Gray said.
“We’re not too concerned about that one.”
Soward was ruled out after suffering a back spasm while kicking according to Gray.
“We didn’t want to take that risk with him so we’re hopeful he’ll be fine next week,” he said.
The Dragons are hopeful they will be able to manager Soward’s pain so he can return to face South Sydney at ANZ Stadium next Saturday.
Soward is set to use anti-inflammatory and physiotherapy combined with a modified light training program to speed up his recovery.
Gray said the injury has come “out of the blue” and not previously been an issue although Soward is now susceptible to repeat spasms.

St George Illawarra Dragons utility Kyle Stanley will be sidelined for the rest of the season after results of his scans confirmed he suffered an ACL knee rupture on Monday. The Hurstville United junior will meet with specialists this week with Dragons physiotherapists confirming his rehabilitation will extend into next campaign’s pre-season. “Unfortunately Kyle Stanley has ruptured his ACL and will require a knee reconstruction,” said Dragons Performance Director Andrew Gray. “He will now meet with specialists over appropriate ACL knee reconstruction procedures in the coming days and require a six to nine month rehabilitation period.” Stanley, 21, sustained the ailment to his right knee during the 18-10 victory over the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at WIN Stadium on Sunday. “Kyle is a highly regarded young athlete at the Dragons and we are all saddened by the scan results,” said Dragons Chief Executive Officer Peter Doust. “We recognise that this is the third such knee reconstruction for Kyle but the first injury to his right knee. “He will now undergo a complete rehabilitation regime and is aware this will occur in an environment that both supports and cares for him.”

St George Illawarra Dragons utility Kyle Stanley will commence his rehabilitation in the coming weeks after undergoing ACL knee reconstruction surgery on Friday. The Hurstville United junior met with surgeons earlier today for the procedure with his rehabilitation expected to extend into next campaign’s pre-season. “Kyle underwent his ACL knee reconstruction operation on Friday,” said Dragons Performance Director Andrew Gray. “He is very disappointed but because he has had this rehabilitation twice before with his left knee, he knows what is in front of him. “Once we get his surgery out of the way he will have a bit of time off to refresh his mind and then get back into his rehabilitation which will take six to nine months.” Stanley, 21, suffered the injury during the 18-10 victory over the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at WIN Stadium, Wollonong on Sunday.

Dragons coach Steve Price says Jamie Soward's return to starting line-up from injury isn't a certainty

Soward ... Speculation grows he may be leaving the Dragons. Source: Brett Costello / AAP

Jamie Soward's future at the Dragons is again the subject of debate, with Steve Price failing to guarantee the classy five-eighth a NRL starting spot next week.

Following fresh reports linking the former NSW five-eighth to English Super League club Wigan, Price admitted Soward's position would be up for debate after Nathan Fien and Ben Hornby led the http://www.foxsports.com.au/league/nrl-premiership/teams/dragons Dragons to their best win of the year over the Storm.
Price failed to rule it out when asked if Fien would be picked ahead of Soward, who missed Friday night's http://www.foxsports.com.au/league/nrl-premiership/brett-morris-scores-three-tries-as-dragons-hand-melbourne-storm-their-fifth-consecutive-nrl-loss/story-fn2mcuj6-1226437111665 26-16 NRL win over the Storm with back spasms.
"That is something I need to sit down with the coaching staff over the next couple of days and discuss," Price said.
"On Tuesday, I'll make that decision."
Soward's injury appears ill-timed with speculation from within the Dragons camp that the five-eighth and Price have been at loggerheads over the club's attacking structure.

Related Content
Both Price and Soward denied any issues yesterday. But it's believed Soward and the coach have had several discussions about the team's style.
Soward has posed several questions to Price about the club's attacking structures and it is understood the former Rooster objected to Beau Scott being switched to the centres for Friday night's match.

Soward was again linked to the Super League, with English tabloid The Sun reporting that the Dragons playmaker had been given permission to seek a release to join the Wigan Warriors.
Soward's manager Sam Ayoub denied his client had sought a release, although he did admit to holding discussions with Wigan earlier this year.
"We have never discussed a release," Ayoub said. "This keeps on coming up but it is 100 per cent wrong. I was approached by Wigan this year early and they asked about his availability and I told them he had a contract. It went no further than that.
"Jamie is very happy where he is. As for the football, I am sure every playmaker at every team is asked for their input. That is nothing unusual at all."
The Dragons rallied against a full-strength Storm outfit on Friday night, breathing new life into their finals hopes. Price is now a hope of making the play-offs in his first season at the helm. He has stuck solid with his coaching style and processes despite strong criticism.
The former Tigers player praised Fien for his starring role at five-eighth and said it was unfortunate Soward missed the match.
"Jamie's back flared up again," Price said.
"It happened against the Sharks a couple of weeks ago. Fien did a great job and was very direct and I was very pleased with his performance."
The fact the Dragons beat the Sharks without Soward two weeks ago could also have a bearing on Price's decision of who to play and who to leave out this week.

Soward still sidelined for NRL Dragons

Jamie Soward has again been left out of St George Illawarra's team to face Sydney Roosters on Friday as he struggles to overcome a back complaint.
Soward was a game day withdrawal from the Dragons' important victory over Melbourne last Friday, and again will be missing despite the club expecting to need at least four wins from their final five matches to qualify for the finals.
The talented five-eighth has been troubled by back spasms in recent weeks, and will be monitored throughout the week before a decision will be made on whether he is a chance to face the Roosters.
"We're not quite sure with Jamie's back but he's under review at the moment with his back spasms," coach Steve Price said.
He has been replaced in the No.6 jersey by New Zealand international Nathan Fien, who filled in superbly in the halves against the Storm, while centre Beau Scott (groin) has been replaced by rookie Nathan Green.
Cronulla's spluttering finals charge received a large boost on Tuesday with the massive inclusions of star duo Todd Carney and Paul Gallen, although forwards Wade Graham and Bryce Gibbs have again been left out.
"To have people like Todd and Gal, exceptional players, coming back if anything it's going to give us a confidence boost," prop Ben Ross told AAP.
Wests Tigers welcome back No.1 Tim Moltzen (hamstring) and Keith Galloway (shoulder) and will try another halves combination - with Liam Fulton taking over at five-eighth while Benji Marshall reverts to the No.7 jersey, allowing skipper Robbie Farah to move back to hooker.
Exciting young winger Marika Koroibete retains his spot for the Parramatta matchup after a promising debut in last weekend's crushing loss to South Sydney.
Manly could field a full-strength lineup for the first time since round one with star fullback Brett Stewart named to return from a hamstring injury suffered in round 18.
The Sea Eagles have named second-rower Anthony Watmough who is fighting a two-match ban for a "chicken wing" tackle at the judiciary on Wednesday night.
Canterbury will again be without halfback Kris Keating when they face Newcastle as he battles a hamstring injury, while Michael Gordon successfully navigated his comeback from a broken leg last week and has been retained at fullback for Penrith's clash with Melbourne.
Corey Parker's knee continues to give him trouble and the workhorse was left out of the Brisbane side to face Canberra, while Gold Coast's Ashley Harrison has been named to make a return from a toe injury against the in-form South Sydney.

St George Illawarra Dragons utility Nathan Fien has been cleared of any structural damage to his neck and will be sidelined for up to four weeks as he undergoes intensive treatment.
The New Zealand international, alongside Club medical staff, consulted a neurosurgeon who reviewed his MRI scans and recommended a recovery time of between two to four weeks.
Fien, 32, suffered the neck injury during the 22-12 loss to Wests Tigers at Allianz Stadium, Moore Park on Saturday.
