Despite coming third in the NYC regular season and booking a spot in the preliminary finals almost a fortnight ago, the young Dragons were left shocked that not one of their players were recently named in the NRL Holden Cup Team of the Year.

Only once in Holden Cup history (2015) has a Dragon failed to make the Team of the Year, with the Red V boasting the equal second-most TOTY representatives since the NYC's inception. 

With a huge final four clash beckoning, the likes of centre Matheson Johns and coach Wayne Collins believe that team unity is the most important thing above all.

Having no one make the Team of the Year is a testament to the young Dragons' unity - which will be on a show this Saturday afternoon against the Sea Eagles at Allianz Stadium.
