Dragons winger Jason Saab missed the first week of training under Anthony Griffin after informing the club he needed time to deal with personal issues.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported Saab’s manager, Mario Tartak, who has been pushing for a release for his client for months, confirmed the young winger absent for new coach Anthony Griffin’s first day in charge on Tuesday.
Saab reportedly wants out of the remaining two years of his Dragons deal to join the Manly Sea Eagles on a deal worth more than he is on at St George Illawarra.

As Sherlock Holmes would say, the game is afoot. When you eliminate the impossible (playing for St George it seems) what ever remains, must be the truth.

St George Illawarra has finally granted Jason Saab a release.

After months of speculation about his future, the Dragons have released Saab from the final two years of his contract on compassionate grounds. It will allow the lanky winger to switch to Manly after the joint-venture outfit was provided a transfer fee as compensation.


The development comes just a day after another rising star, Joseph Suaalii, was released from the final year of his South Sydney contract to join the Roosters.
Saab is seeking a club closer to home to spend more time with his family after struggling with the commute to Wollongong. The Red V had all but agreed to a release under previous coach Paul McGregor, but replacement Anthony Griffin was less keen to lose one of the NRL's most exciting outside backs.

Saab was a no-show when the Dragons returned to training last week, requiring time off to deal with personal issues. After the Dragons ruled out several proposed player swaps, the parties finally settled on a compensation fee that will allow Saab to link with Des Hasler at the Sea Eagles.

While Saab will join Manly, the Sea Eagles could lose Curtis Sironen as part of a player swap with Wests Tigers forward Luke Garner. Another Tiger, Josh Aloai, is also agitating for a release to join Manly. That is likely to be forthcoming, with the Tigers closing in on the signature of Brisbane forward Joe Ofahengaue.

One down! Surely we wont swap Sironen! Aloiai coming - hopefully the Roosters winger as well - keep Sironen - get Garner - great off season!
While on the surface it would seem strange to swap siro (a player we’ve grown acustom to as our starting second-rower, although has really struggled with injury and lost some impact/versatility in 2020) it would allow us to finally see Olakautau get closer to the 12 jersey, bring in a local junior and help continue to change up our side (and continue with or trend toward youth and to a degree mobility)
