The St George Illawarra Dragons have continued to add depth to their 2015 roster with the addition of former Bulldogs and Eels play maker Kris Keating to a one-year deal.
Keating 25, most recently played for Hull KR in the European Super League and Dragons head coach Paul McGregor believes he will be a good fit for the club.
“Kris has played representative football and also played in an NRL Grand Final, he will provide our squad with some additional depth and we look forward to him joining the Dragons,” McGregor told the Dragons’ website.
Keating made his NRL debut in 2008 for the Parramatta Eels and played 41 games for the club over 3 seasons, including the 2009 grand final loss to the Melbourne Storm. He then joined the Bulldogs for 3 seasons (2011-2013), playing 41 games before joining Hull KR for the 2014 season where he played 24 games.
The club has also confirmed that utility Kyle Stanley will not be at the club in 2015. Stanley, who can play anywhere in the back line, in the halves or at hooker, is a prodigiously talented, if injury-prone player who managed just 46 games for the Dragons since his debut in 2010. Season-ending knee injuries in 2012 and 2013 halted his progress but he finished 2014 strongly.
