On the field, their performances may be inconsistent and angering fans, but St George Illawarra fans will be pleased to know that fan favourite Joel Thompson has re-signed.
The back-rower, who has spent the last four years with the club, has signed a 2-year extension that runs until the end of 2018.
With 58 appearances for the Dragons and 147 NRL games played to date, the five-time Indigenous All-Star representative is pleased to have his future sorted with the Dragons.
â€œI am really pleased to be able to continue my career here with the Dragons and it was an easy decision to make,â€ said Thompson.
â€œI have been with the Club for four seasons now and itâ€™s great to be playing alongside a terrific bunch of guys and learning under the coaching staff.â€
Equally pleased are the club, who see Thompson has a crucial piece moving forward.
â€œJoel is a very hard-working player who lets his actions do the talking whenever he takes to the field,â€ said Director of Rugby League Pathways, Ian Millward.
â€œHe is an important part of the playing group and everyone at the Club is pleased by his decision to remain for at least a further two seasons.â€
