‘Not coming down to babysit’: Dragons NRLW team signs 42yo Steph Hancock

Must read

Jamie Soward has declared veteran Steph Hancock is not coming to St George Illawarra merely to be a babysitter, after signing the 42-year-old to a one-season NRLW deal.

Some 21 years after her Test debut for Australia, Hancock has agreed to terms to join a young Dragons pack after opting to move south from the Gold Coast.

A grand finalist with the Titans last year, Hancock will likely play a similar role to that which she performed off the bench in 2023.

After being squeezed out of Gold Coast and their rising pack, Hancock emerged as an option for Dragons coach Soward after prop Tara McGrath-West was ruled out for the season with a sternum injury.
