RUGBY LEAGUE Chase Stanley nervously grins when asked, then deep down prays this story doesn't see the light of day. In a year where the Dragons are churning through unwanted records as their season unravels, his streak is worth talking about. It involves potting his last 12 conversions without fail - not bad for someone once so far back in the goalkicking queue even Josh Dugan and Cameron King were handed the tee before he was. It just happens that the Dragons' first-choice kicker, mid-season departee Jamie Soward, was the one that laid the groundwork for the Kiwi's sharpshooting ways. Full coverage of the NRL "Sowie was actually the one that taught me to kick when I was younger," Stanley said. "I'm doing a lot of practice with the coaches. It's just something they've wanted me to do and I'm happy to do it. "I'm doing a couple of kicks after training to keep it up. I don't want to lose [the ability to kick goals]. I think I missed one [earlier in the season] and, touch wood, we keep scoring close to the posts." While it's a sequence he's been proud of, perhaps the fact he has figured in all bar three top grade games for the Dragons is of more significance. More often to be found in rehabilitation than on the training field in recent years, the 24-year-old is intent on finishing St George Illawarra's turbulent season on his own terms. "I haven't played a full season since back in my first year in 2007," Stanley said. "I feel better now and I've got more than that handful of games under my belt. "I'm just looking to keep that going and finish the season on a high with all these boys who won't be playing with each other again." That list could extend to Stanley, deputising at five-eighth for parts of the season, who is guarded about his future. The Dragons have signed centres Dylan Farrell (Souths) and Peter Mata'utia (Newcastle) for 2014 to cover for Matt Cooper's retirement as well as National Youth Competition graduates Charly Runciman and Nathan Green jostling for positions. "In the next couple of weeks, before the season ends, I'll probably make a decision by then. I'll see how it goes," Stanley said. "I'll talk to my manager and see what the go is but I want to stay in rugby league." Stanley will again partner Runciman in the centres for the Dragons' clash against wooden spooners Parramatta on Monday. "It doesn't matter where they're sitting on the ladder; every team you verse week in week out is going to be tough. "We just didn't turn up to play [against the Tigers]. They steamrolled us and I thought it was a pretty soft effort from everybody."
