Dragons sign L'Estrange & Henry
The Dragons bargain-basement spending spree has continued with fringe first-graders Heath L'estrange and Beau Henry agreeing to terms with the club for 2015.
L'Estrange, 29, joins the club after a second stint with the Roosters having returned from Super League midway through 2014. He brings 175 games of experience across both the English and Australasian competitions to Paul McGregor's outfit. The veteran rake also won a premiership during his two years with Manly in 2008-09 and looms as a potential mentor for the Dragons young hookers Mitch Rein and Craig Garvey.
Henry, meanwhile, returns to St George Illawarra after four years at the Knights and the Titans, where he played 14 top flight games, but failed to deliver on the potential that saw him win the NYC player of the year award as a 19-year-old in 2009.
The move to secure L'Estrange and Henry continues the upheaval of McGregor's roster in preparation for 2015, following on from recent signings of George Rose (Melbourne), Rulon Nutira (Gundagai Tigers - Group 9), Eto Nabuli (Panthers) and Rory O'Brien (Illawarra Cutters).
St George Illawarra also confirmed that Josh Ailaomai, Bronson Harrison, Willie Mataka and Shane Pumipi will not be at the club next season.
