The Dragons have been dealt a major blow for the 2017 campaign, losing halfback Drew Hutchison to an ACL injury at training.
The Dragons are now on the hunt for a replacement to partner Gareth Widdop in the halves for 2017. We look at the possible replacements for Hutchison.
The Dragons were initially keen to negotiate with Hastings as a possible replacement for Benji Marshall for next season, but after further investigations made by the club, decided against the move as they believed the 20-year-old personality would fit into their squad.
Hastings is also struggling to secure his future after he finished the year on the outer at the Sydney Roosters and at this stage is expected to play in the Roosters feeder club.
The Roosters are desperate to off-load Jackson and are willing to pay the majority of contract to offload him.
Likelihood to partner Widdop in 2017: VERY LOW
