St George Illawarra will meet next Tuesday to discuss coach Paul McGregor’s future as it grows increasingly likely he won’t see out the final year of his deal.
The Dragons unanimously backed McGregor at a meeting following a winless opening four rounds of the season, but the coach’s future is again on the agenda as the club looks set to miss the finals for a second consecutive year.
The Dragons shook things up after a meeting sparked by the round four loss to Canterbury, shifting McGregor from attack coach to defensive coach and swapping assistant coach Shane Flanagan from defence to attack. There was some initial success but results in recent weeks have fallen away.
Dragons chief executive Ryan Webb confirmed the club would discuss McGregor’s future next week, but said a decision had not been made.
