St George Illawarra Dragons odds

St George Illawarra NRL odds
St George Illawarra shocked the NRL in 2017 when they bolted to the top of the ladder despite being slated as contenders for the wooden spoon. They could not quite maintain that pace, however, and threw away a finals place with a last-round loss to the Canterbury Bulldogs.

Gareth Widdop has carried the team in recent years, but the skipper now has a big-money halves partner in Ben Hunt and a defensive leader in England teammate James Graham. You won’t find many bookmakers forecasting a bottom-of-the-ladder finish for the Dragons in 2018.

Can Paul McGregor’s men book a finals berth this time around? Let’s take a look at the odds.

Dragons players to watch in 2018

Dragons star Ben HuntBen Hunt
Born: 27/3/1990
Games: 189
Tries: 45
Position: Halfback

A few eyebrows were raised when the Dragons spent millions to secure Hunt on a five-year deal. That investment looked to have gone sour when the Broncos dropped their first-string halfback to the reserves midway through 2017, but he bounced back to play a key role in Queensland’s Origin win and Brisbane’s run to the prelims. The Hunt-Widdop halves pairing looks very promising on paper.

NRL star James GrahamJames Graham
Born: 10/11/1985
Games: 360
Tries: 62
Position: Prop

As a product of Merseyside in the UK, Graham knows all about bitter football rivalries. That’s why it was somewhat surprising that the former Canterbury Bulldogs captain announced last year that he was leaving Belmore and moving to Kogarah. Past allegiances aside, the England prop will add fight and experience to St George Illawarra’s front row.

Dragons winger Nene MacdonaldNene Macdonald
Born: 11/5/1994
Games: 68
Tries: 23
Position: Winger

The Red V will need much more from the wings this season if they are to make any sort of impact on the finals. Macdonald was nowhere near dangerous enough in his first year at the Dragons, finishing with only six tries from 23 games. It might be a case of shape up or ship out for the PNG international in 2018.
