Best a Dragon

Hull winger Colin Best is to join Australian club St George-Illawarra Dragons for next season. The 25-year-old, who has scored 51 tries in his two years at Hull, said last week that he was leaving the club.

The ex-Cronulla player follows coach Shaun McRae, who is taking over at South Sydney and Canberra-bound loose forward Jason Smith back to Australia.

"Colin can play wing, centre or full-back," Dragons coach Nathan Brown told the League Correspondent.

"He is a big, athletic try-scorer and we are looking forward to having him on board."
