The Dragons may have dropped the ball by letting Josh Dugan and Russell Packer leave the club, but they’ve reportedly managed to get one re-signing exactly right.
According to Daily Telegraph writer David Riccio, the Dragons have re-signed head coach Paul McGregor on a new two-year deal, keeping him at the club until the end of 2019.
McGregor had entered 2017 under extreme pressure to keep his job, after the Dragons missed the finals in 2016, with an offense that struggled to score points. He’s righted the ship in convincing fashion so far in 2017, giving the Dragons an offensive makeover that’s seen them score the most points in the competition after 13 Rounds.
With McGregor signed, every club in the NRL now has their head coach under contract for next year (at least for the time being).
McGregor has coached the Dragons since 2014, with a winning percentage of 49.4%.
