Dragons coach Paul McGregor can’t stop winning just yet.
According to AAP, St George Illawarra are in no hurry to re-sign their head coach, despite their lofty position on the ladder.
When asked about McGregor’s contract, St George Illawarra boss Peter Doust said “it is a decision for the Dragons board and there is no set time frame”.
Which is a fair call. With every other current NRL head coach under contract for 2018, there’s no immediate risk of McGregor being poached by an opposition club.
But if the Dragons over-react to their recent success and re-sign their coach, only to see them revert to the bog average football of 2016, it could be a very expensive mistake.
Besides, coaching without a contract doesn’t seem to be causing any problems for Mary so far.
