"Jason Nightingale: I grew up watching him from start to finish and he's one of the most underrated players of all time. He was loyal, hardworking and just an overall decent human being which turned into results (double in the grand final was awesome). One of the happiest moments in my life was having coffee with him during my work experience which for a 15-year-old was the ultimate achievement, we didn't even talk about footy which was nice. Whenever I play Oz-Tag, I always wear the number five and play right wing in respect for him. These are the reasons why he will always be my favourite Dragons player (I have the '250' jersey to prove it)."
- Renate N, 11-year member from Oak Flats, New South Wales
"Tariq Sims: I think that Tariq is one of the hardest working players that there is. Week-in, week-out he gives his all. He shows such good sportsmanship all the time. He is very deserving of his Origin spot and is a great example for the young kids to look up to. I know my two grandsons admire him very much. A couple of seasons ago we were on our way back from an away game and we stopped in at Maccas and all the Dragon players were there too, and my two grandsons were at the counter ordering their food when Tariq started chatting to them. To say they were excited was an understatement. When the time came to pay for their order Tariq stepped up and paid for their order. We couldn't believe it. That is someone special."
Thank you: Players call 2021 members
A few of our Dragons players took the time to personally call some of our inaugural 20-year members to thank them for their long-term and committed support. Although we weren't able to call all 502 of our 20-year members, we are very appreciative of all of your continued support.
Thank you: Players call 2021 members
