Stats Insider: Paul McGregor’s miracle, Dragons’ incredible transformation broken down

AFTER a disappointing 11th-placed finish in 2016, St George Illawarra’s summer flashed by without much to take the eye.

What was needed, according to most armchair critics, was a drastic overhaul of a popgun attack that fired blanks to the tune of just 341 points for the season.

To put that number in context, only Newcastle scored less, and not by much.

Out the door went Benji Marshall and Mitch Rein, leaving just enough salary cap space to make a bit of a splash and spice up the misfiring spine.

But the Dragons failed with their attempts to lure Luke Keary, Lachlan Coote and others. They wound up with a Rabbitohs hooker who’d failed to develop into the player they expected him to be and a front-rower languishing in reserve grade.
