Dragons duo desperate to impress 34 views 0 Comments 0 Images
20 February 2014 by Englandfan See all
St George Illawarra Dragons duo Dan Hunt and Kyle Stanley are looking forward to the start of the new season more than most players after enduring terrible times with injuries in 2013.

Prop Dan Hunt was sidelined for most of last season with knee and shoulder injuries but the 27-year-old is eager to show what the Dragons have been missing when the 2014 campaign gets underway.

“My knee is going well and I got through my first trial match against the Bulldogs. I have a whole new lease of life for 2014 so I can’t wait to get out there and start playing.

“This time last year I had a torn calf and I wasn’t able to play any trials so I’m feeling more positive about this season.”

Meanwhile, Stanley insists he couldn't be happier with the health of his knees, as he prepares for his latest comeback.

The 22-year-old has had four reconstructions, two on each knee, but is raring to go when NRL betting gets underway again for the first round of matches in March.

He admits that at times during his latest lay-off, which saw him sit out the entire 2013 season, the possibility of retirement had hit home, saying: "I’d be lying if I said I didn't think about quitting the game. The hardest part of injuries is the mental side of things but I’d like to think I’m mentally strong."

Stanley’s first left knee reconstruction came when he was just 16 and he injured the same knee again the following year.

His 2012 season ended prematurely when he picked up an injury against Cronulla, and the same right knee buckled again just before the start of last season when he was working around the house.

The utility player has scored 16 tries in his 37 NRL games for the Dragons, who will be desperate to climb the NRL ladder this year after finishing a disappointing 14th last year.
