The Australian was loaned to the French outfit in 2006 from Canberra Raiders as a replacement to the renowned Stacey Jones. The halfback impressed in Perpignan was his natural ability and this proved a springboard for his career, as Wigan Warriors came calling, where again he proved to be a key player.
Dobson explained to us how grateful he was for his time at Catalan. He said, “My time at the Dragons was massive, at the time I was only a youngster training with the first team at Canberra Raiders.
“I learnt my trade at the Dragons from Stacey Jones and it was a massive learning experience. I am very grateful for his help.”
The former Wigan player said how much an influence the Kiwi had on his playing style. He said, “Stacey Jones was a big influence on my career. He was such a great scrum half and to just be around him was a really big help. Enjoyed working every minute with him.”
Dobson, a product of the Raiders, will face his former employers this coming Sunday with Hull KR coming off the back of a four game win streak.
