Their fans have been crying out for a regular halfback to come into first-grade and potentially give them a much needed spark in attack and Dragons fans may have gotten their wish, with former Penrith halfback Harry Siejka signing with the club for the remainder of the 2013 season.
Siejka, who started his career at the Penrith Panthers before a move to the New Zealand Warriors, decided to return home, citing personal reasons.
The 21-year old is excited at the opportunity he now has at the Dragons and is looking forward to getting involved with the club.
â€œIâ€™m really excited by the opportunity to play for the Dragons as theyâ€™re a Club with a rich and proud history,â€ said Siejka.
â€œIâ€™m very thankful to be a part of the Club Buy Viagra and look forward to getting stuck into training alongside my new teammates.â€
A Bathurst Panther junior, Siejka can play at five-eighth or halfback and was named in the 2012 U20’s NSW Blues side.
Having also represented the Australian Schoolboys at U15 level, Siejka says it was not seeing his family and friends during his stint in New Zealand that took a toll on him, and he had no choice but to seek a move back home.
â€œIt does take a toll not being around family and friends and while I enjoyed my time in New Zealand, I also missed home,â€ said Siejka.
â€œThe team here at the Dragons is a good mix of younger players and established internationals and I look forward to now being a part of that.â€
