Hornby + Young: Creagh A True Leader

Former St George Illawarra Dragons duo Ben Hornby and Dean Young reflect on the career of teammate Ben Creagh, who announced his retirement from rugby league on Thursday.

The local University of Wollongong junior played 270 first-grade fixtures as a one-club man and retires as the second most-capped first-grade player in the Club's history, behind only Hornby (273).

Creagh, 31, sustained a complex knee injury in Round 3 against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at the Sydney Cricket Ground which has limited him to only three first-grade fixtures so far this season.
