Sad day for Saints fans.
It has been confirmed today that St George Illawara winger, Nathan Blacklock is to retire. Blacklock joined the Dragons in 1997 and has had a major role to play in the clubs success on the field. "Tinga" turned into a try scoring machine for the Dragons and his ability to create play from nothing was a godsend. His friendship on and off the feild with team mate Anthony Mundine was often highlighted by the mutual understanding the 2 men had while playing. Both seemed aware of the others moves and they would often create surprise moves that would result in tries. His characteristic after try celebration of a somersault will be missed by fans the world over.
More coming with comprehensive stats of Nathans outstanding career.
