Dragons confirm staffing appointments for 2024 season

The Dragons can confirm the appointments of Dean Young, Dan Lawson and Andrew Gray to the club’s football department for the 2024 season.

Young is the fifth-most capped player in St George Illawarra history and won the 2010 premiership with the club. He returns to the Dragons from a role at the Cowboys as Senior Assistant Coach under 2024 head coach Shane Flanagan.

Lawson returns to the club as High Performance Manager. He returns to the club from the Titans, having worked under Wayne Bennett during the 2010 Premiership season as well as with Flanagan at the Sharks during their 2016 Premiership run.

Gray returns to the club as High Performance Consultant. Like Lawson, he worked under Bennett at the Dragons in 2010 and under Flanagan at the Sharks in 2016. He is currently a consultant to the New Zealand Rugby League.

“To have people of the calibre, experience and knowledge of Dean, Dan and Andrew involved in the football program in 2024 is only going to make the club stronger,” said Dragons General Manager of Football Ben Haran.

“We look forward to building out the rest of the football department staff with Shane over the coming months.”
