The St George Illawarra Dragons categorically state there is no crisis at the Club. Management is merely going about the business of planning the Club�s short-term future.
The Dragons are embarrassed and disturbed by the well publicised events of recent days surrounding the proposed discussions with Shaun Timmins and Lance Thompson in relation to their playing future and beyond.
That communication is a normal internal management process where players are provided the opportunity to assess their own positions and the Club is able to facilitate further planning in its short to medium term playing rosters.
Club Management had not spoken with Thompson prior to his comments and assertions in the media.
The Club is working through the issues internally and will make no further comment on the situation until the matter is resolved.
