While the Dragons were caught up in their annual slide through the second half of the season, there were relatively few things for Dragons fans to feel good about.
One highlight from that period though was the emergence of winger Jordan Pereira who broke out into a genuine attacking weapon during a time when many of his teammates were struggling for form.
Appropriately, Pereira has been rewarded for his form, with the Dragons today announcing his retention on a new two-year deal until the end of 2020.
With long-time winger Jason Nightingale retiring, Dragons fans can relax knowing that their flanks are in safe hands.
Pereira has played 9 first grade games for the Dragons since making his debut in Round 19.
