Bitter-sweet win for St George Illawarra Dragons


St George Illawarra has farewelled coach Paul McGregor with a narrow 14 to 12 win over the Parramatta Eels.

Dragons playmaker Ben Hunt says it's been an emotional week: " Bit of bitter-sweet. Obviously you don't wanna see a coach go out like that, but you know, we wanted to get out and do a job for him tonight. You know, it wasn't pretty but we got it done."

McGregor says the Dragons are in good hands for the remainder of the season: "They've got a good leader in Dean. He's a good coach, good person, he bleeds red and white. You've got a playing group who want to play hard."
