The Dragons are in the midst of a rebuild under Shane Flanagan’s leadership, with several key positions up for grabs heading into Round 1 of the 2024 NRL season. Ben Hunt is set at halfback, while other spots remain uncertain. The club has plenty of money to spend but has struggled to attract high-profile recruits. Corey Allan and Ronald Volkman, two recent signings, are already out due to injury and failed medical tests, respectively. Flanagan’s focus will be on improving the team’s defense, while several players are eyeing position changes. Key signings to watch include Kyle Flanagan, Hame Sele, and Tom Eisenhuth, while players such as Junior Amone and Jayden Sullivan have left the club. The club is also facing uncertainty about the future of Tyrell Sloan and Cody Ramsey. The forward pack will remain largely unchanged, with young players expected to see increased game time. The predicted Round 1 team features Flanagan, Hunt, and Liddle but has several spots yet to be settled.
