The Dragons head into the new season without their most potent outside back in Brett Morris who left for Canterbury to join his twin brother in the off season. There is more turmoil to come with the impending exit of star forward Trent Merrin.

It’s time the Saints fired up and showed their fans that their not just here to make up the numbers. Whether Merrin leaves or not doesn’t matter, the Dragons as a team need to find some attitude.
