McGregor survives as Dragons coach after board meeting


Paul McGregor will continue as St George Illawarra Dragons coach after a board meeting on Tuesday.

McGregor is under fire after the Dragons' woeful 0-4 start to the NRL season, including Monday's 22-2 loss to the Canterbury Bulldogs.

The Dragons' board of directors met on Tuesday to discuss the 52-year-old's future, with McGregor to stay on.

"Although the board acknowledges the club's performances so far throughout 2020 have been unacceptable; we will continue to support Paul, his staff and the team through these tough times," Dragons chairman Andrew Gordon said in a statement.

"We are committed to Paul as coach of the St George Illawarra Dragons and look forward to seeing him right the wrongs of the opening month of the current campaign.

"We are a club that stands by our people when under pressure. This is a time for loyalty, strength and commitment from the players, coach, board and staff to improve."

Bottom of the ladder as the NRL's only winless team, the Dragons face the Cronulla Sharks on Sunday.
