Dragons strike agreement with Illawarra Carlton League

The St George Illawarra Dragons Football Management and the Illawarra Rugby League Board of Management have determined a policy that will see surplus contracted Dragons players participate in the Illawarra Carlton League throughout the 2011 season.

The Dragons combined NRL and NYC rosters sees in excess of 60 players contracted to the Club and with only 17 players within each competition able to participate each week, there is a requirement for the surplus players to play rugby league outside of the NRL and NYC competitions on a weekly basis.

Unfortunately the Dragons' arrangement with Shellharbour from last season is not able to continue in 2011 but, fortunately, the Dragons have the capacity to position their players in the Illawarra Carlton Rugby League.
