St George Illawarra lock down hooker Cameron McInnes with new deal

PAUL McGregor and his recruitment staff have been busy shoring up the Dragons’ spine long-term, but there’s one piece of the puzzle yet to fit.

Hooker Cameron McInnes inked a new three-year extension on Thursday, meaning three members of the spine are committed until at least the end of 2021.

McInnes and five-eighth Gareth Widdop are locked in for the next four years, while new halfback Ben Hunt is signed on until the end of 2022.

But McGregor still needs to find a fullback to complete his four-year retention drive.

The exit of Josh Dugan means there’s no obvious frontrunner for the No.1 jumper.
