Price is right for Dragons

Townsville Bulletin - - Rugby League -

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.
