Young to depart Dragons


After calling St George Illawarra home for the last 17 years, interim coach Dean Young is leaving the club.

He's told officials that he will finish up with the organisation after next weekend's season ending clash against Melbourne at Kogarah.


Young has options to continue his coaching career and is expected to join either North Queensland or Newcastle as an assistant coach.

The 2010 Dragons Premiership winner's decision means that newly appointed Dragons head coach Anthony Griffin will now be able to assemble his own coaching team.
