Rugby league great Mark Geyer has unleashed a scathing attack at the St George Illawarra Dragons in the wake of a dramatic 48 hours.The Dragons camp was rocked when news broke on Tuesday of captain Cameron McInnes signing a four-year deal with arch-rivals Cronulla, and they then decided in a general meeting on Wednesday to abandon their pursuit of controversial code-hopper Israel Folau.Geyer was particularly critical of how the Dragons had dealt with the Folau situation, slamming the club for only wrapping up the saga with a two-line statement that left their fans with endless questions.Israel Folau in action for the Catalans Dragons.

They want answers, they need answers and they need them now."Israel Folau shouldn't be welcomed back to NRL says Drew MitchellThe Dragons had approached the NRL about signing Folau, reportedly on a two-year deal worth $1 million.But they ditched their pursuit of the Catalans Dragons centre on the back of savage feedback from fans, who had lashed the club for chasing a player with a history of making controversial remarks about homosexuality on social media.All the club did to publicly close their pursuit of Folau was release the following statement:"While the Dragons did enquire about signing Folau, the club can confirm that such discussions have now ceased," the statement reads."The Dragons will make no further comment."Israel Folau receives the footy in Catalans Dragons colours.

We all bought into the whole Israel saga in the last 48 hours and now it's just fizzled off."You're telling me that two-line summary is all they're going to give us … That's bulls**t. They've got to make more comments because (coach Anthony) Griffin needs them to."He looks like the one who's orchestrated all of this. He's probably had nothing to do with it."Someone needs to be made accountable and say, 'This is what happened, this is why we went after him, it wasn't a smokescreen'."Did you really want Israel in the first place or was it just a smokescreen for other things that are going on?"McInnes' four-year deal with the Sharks is set to begin at the completion of the 2021 season.Cronulla legend Paul Gallen was astonished at the Sharks' poaching of the fringe NSW Blues hooker, telling Wide World of Sports he "can't believe the Dragons have let him go".St George Illawarra Dragons captain Cameron McInnes.

You've got a chance to redeem yourselves - the Dragons hierarchy - but you've got to do it as soon as possible."For a daily dose of the best of the breaking news and exclusive content from Wide World of Sports, subscribe to our newsletter by clicking here!
