Gareth Widdop’s first Interview as a Dragon!
Three years ago today, the St. George Illawarra Dragons won their first premiership. What an amazing and unforgettable day, especially for the true believers.
It’s always sad seeing players leave at the end of the season, whether it be due to retirement, or seeking opportunities at other clubs. Best of luck to the guys leaving the Dragons at the end of this year, may there be continued success in all of your chosen paths.
"It’s never really a good bye at the Dragons, It’s just a see you later." - Michael Weyman
Well 2013, what a season for the Dragons. Although it was quite a ‘dismal’ season in the sense not a lot of games were won and ‘under performing’ was an issue, there is no doubt we have learnt there is such determination and passion within the Dragons side. Injuries plagued the season but the first grade and Dragons debuts of players definitely showed signs of positivity for seasons ahead.
So yes, this season did not go to plan, but there is next to no doubt next season will be one of improvement and hopefully a few more wins. In the end, as long as the boys and supporters have a smile on their faces, that’s all that matters.
Matt Cooper will retire from the NRL at season’s end.
For the past 14 years, the Dragons faithful and fans of the game a like have watched the boy from Shellharbour mature into a Red V and NRL legend. Coops ends his career having played 243 games for St. George Illawarra including the memorable 2010 grand final. He has also scored an impressive 124 career tries. The skill, determination and passion Coops possesses has definitely been a factor of his success. He has always been a reliable and pivotal member of the Dragons team particularly with his reputation as the game’s best defensive center.
Matt Cooper will always be seen as a Dragons legend with a career filled with great accomplishments including The Sexiest Man in League!
The memories Coops leaves behind will carry on for a very long time yet. All the best to Coops in retirement, his future continues to shine brightly!
Nathan Fien will play his last ever NRL game this weekend when the Dragons take on the Warriors.
Fiensy first arrived at the Dragons in mid 2009 and has played a pivotal role for the team. He has definitely copped his fair share of criticism, particularly over the past year, but to be fair, he has been the only key playmaker for the Dragons this season.
There are many highlights associated with Nathan’s Dragons career, none more so than the 2010 season, which looked to be a horror one for Fien, after breaking his leg in the early rounds of the year. His never say die attitude prevailed and he played an outstanding role in the 2010 finals campaign, where he scored the match winning try in the grand final!
All the best to Fiensy in his retirement, may the memories live on forever!
