You can never have enough young talent in your side, or as depth, and the Dragons have moved quickly to shore up their halfback stocks – signing Manly Sea Eagles NYC halfback Josh Drinkwater, on a 2-year deal.
In even more good news for the Dragons, the club announced that at the same time, they had re-signed talented young utility backs Charly Runciman and Evander Cummins, also until the end of the 2014 NRL season.
Both players are talented, with Cummins recovering from knee surgery, and Runciman currently leading the Dragons Toyota Cup in tries scored, with 20.
Peter Doust, the Dragons CEO, said that he is looking forward to seeing all three young players in action at the club, as well as looking forward to their development over the next few years as people and players.
â€œI am pleased that Josh has decided to sign with the Club for at least two years as he is a promising talent,â€ said Doust.
â€œThe same sentiments also extend to both Evander and Charly who have led by example on the field for the Under 20â€™s this season.â€
