Depth in any position is always an added bonus for any side, and for the Dragons 2013 NRL side, they will have just that – with 20-year old five-eighth Todd Ryan re-signing with the club, on a 1-year deal.
Ryan, who is a Milton junior, was a key factor in the Dragons push towards the NYC finals series – before the side eventually lost out to the in-form Canberra Raiders.
Ryan will join the Dragons first-grade side pre-season train-on squad, when the training for 2013 commences later in the year.
â€œI want to pay the Club back for their faith in me and work hard throughout the pre-season, with the goal of playing a few games next season,â€ said Ryan.
â€œIâ€™ve been able to train with the first-grade squad a few times this year and love the intensity that comes with it.
â€œThe preliminary final result was disappointing as we had a slow start and struggled to get back into it from there.
â€œOverall though, I think the boys dug deep for the majority of the year.
â€œWe started the season slow which put us on the back foot, but a credit to the team as the last month has been the best football weâ€™ve played all year.â€
