Star’s future in jeopardy as club set to discuss tearing up his contract

Paul Vaughan hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons at the weekend, hosting a party at his house.

Vaughan and the 12 other St George Illawarra players involved were hit with huge fines by the NRL as well as a combined 20-match ban.

But, the Dragons look to be ready to go one step further, with his future set to be discussed at a board meeting on Tuesday, Fox Sports has revealed.

Vaughan’s contract has an option in his favour for next season – which he has already taken up – but Fox Sports’ James Hooper believes that the club will consider ripping up the 30-year-old’s contract.

“There’s a Dragons board meeting (on Tuesday) morning and Paul Vaughan is clinging on by the skin, like he’s that close,” Hooper told NRL 360.

“There’s no question whatsoever that tearing up his contract is going to be discussed. Whether they follow through or not, we’ll wait and see but definitely that is on the agenda.

“It’s every chance (Vaughan has played his last game for the Dragons).

“He’s on a rich contract, it’s nearly $800,000 a year. When he signed with the Dragons he signed for five seasons, the fifth year was an option in his favour, which he’s already taken up.

“But that, right here right now, is in jeopardy.”
