Dragons Looking To Offload Young Talent

Several Super League clubs are believed to be chasing the signature of St George Illawarra Dragons full-back Matt Dufty for 2019.

Matt Dufty’s future at St George-Illawarra isn’t as rosy as most would believe.

Contracted until the end of 2019, the Dragons attempted to start the process of extending Dufty’s contract.However, the young fullback’s asking price is far beyond what the club is willing to pay.

Dufty’s asking price also reflects a fullback who boasts a passing and kicking game – none of which he currently has in his arsenal.

Reports have suggested that the Dragons are trying to offload the 22-year-old ahead of next season because they don’t like his work ethic. Dufty made his NRL debut in 2017 and has scored 15 tries in 32 games for the club, but he appears to be on his way out and four Super League teams are understood to be interested in him.
