So I would like to know what rating you would give to Halser, Maguire, Bellamy, Bennett, Smith and Kearny.

can't we give him a lil repreive due to the fact we were missing our best forward for most of this season?

Too true M. We lost our star signing at FB before the season started. We lost Mick W early on. Beau has been missing for some time and Coops has been in and out all season. Both Stanleys have been a problem. Young has also missed games. Fien is another one. Sowie's had his back problems. A few other forwards have had injury and Matty P went missing for 5 (?) weeks with suspension. King also had issues.

All in all - a very bad season for injury.

If you guys are allowed to use injuries as an excuse then so are we.

you can use any excuse you want to justify your magnificent taking of the spoon. At least you have something for the trophy cabinet:popcorn:

Yep - its one thing we don't have !

For the Trophy Cabinet?

Wouldn't it be in the kitchen of the leagues club?

That spoon certainly is good for stirring ... ;)

Steve's on a hiding to nothing. Apparently first cab off the rank re the bookies and coach's being fired. He wasn't given the players Benny had but is expected to perform like Benny.

All he needs is one top back and one top forward IMO. BUT - he may well be the big surprise of 2013.

STEVE PRICE could well be remembered as the meat in the sandwich provided by two of the greatest coaches in league history.

Having begun his coaching tenure as the heir to the greatest coach in the history of the game, Price's fate rests in the hands of the man many consider the most brilliant man-manager of the modern era.

Embattled St George Illawarra coach Steve Price has the full support of the NRL club's playing group and should be re-signed by the Dragons, according to newly-minted captain Ben Creagh.

Dragons will now focus on JT if they cant get the coach they will try to get the player.
Steve Price needs to shake things up this year remove himself from Bennetts structures and try his own brand. Show something as his career will be very short at the top.

I agree - its a disgrace. They sold off half the stars, then retired a few, then bought no-one of consequence - NOW blame Steve for the 2012 result !!

He should be given till Round 20 at least to make his play. This year he has a team that can play ! Give the bugger a chance.

Blaming him for 2012 sounds like Doust trying to shift the blame ... again ... ;)

Price doesn't deserve the criticism he gets but he also doesn't deserve amnesty either...he made mistakes too which cost us. 
saints

saints

Agreed - but he lost about 10 or 12 top level guys and had an ageing squad. Even Saint Benny might falter with this handicap ... :)

St George Illawarra Dragons Head Coach Steve Price is confident his team are ready to face the challenges that lie ahead when the face the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park, Melbourne on Sunday.

Price named a travelling 18-man squad for the trip south of the state line and discussed the competition for places amongst the playing group, which he believes will benefit the club over the course of the new campaign.
