Price is right for Dragons
Steve Price IN the end, it was hard not to feel sorry for new St George Illawarra coach Steve Price. At his unveiling as the man to succeed Wayne Bennett at the Dragons in 2012, Price spent much of the nearly 30-minute press conference at Wollongong’s Steelers Club in silence. Patiently he waited as Bennett answered umpteen questions about his legacy and future, and listened as first chief executive Peter Doust and then captain Ben Hornby spoke of their disappointment at seeing Bennett finally make the call to leave. Price – a 33-year-old former St George and Balmain fiveeighth who managed just 12 top-grade games in a career cut short by injury – now gets the chance to carve out his own legend.
