The Dragons are delighted to announce that local junior Toby Couchman will be promoted to a top 30 contract and will make his NRL debut in round two.

Toby and his twin brother Ryan each played their junior footy for the Thirroul Butchers and came through the Dragons academy system.

"It's always a rewarding moment to see a local junior make their debut for the Dragons," said Dragons General Manager of Football Ben Haran.

"We're a club that wants to continue to provide opportunities for our locally-produced players to play at the highest level.

"Toby has a great work ethic and has shown this throughout the pre-season to be given the opportunity to be elevated to the top 30.

"We're looking forward to seeing his development continue alongside his brother Ryan as they are the type of players and people we are looking to build the club around over the coming seasons."

The promotion of Toby into the top 30 leaves the Dragons with one spot left to fill for the 2023 season.
