Controversial NRL star Josh Dugan scores $2.1million for the sale of his beautiful Sutherland Shire home
Controversial NRL player Josh Dugan has just scored big with a $2.1million sale for his beautiful home in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire.
Domain reports that the price tag on the recently renovated two-storey four-bedroom Gymea Bay house is well above the suburbs median of $1.874m.
Purchased by Dugan in 2016 for $1.22m, the sale will likely net the former Sharks star a cool million.

His final contract with Cronulla was worth $850,000.
With its open plan layout, the property has a bright airy atmosphere and includes two bathrooms and a granny flat which could also be used as studio space.
Dugan made some home improvements in his six years at the southern suburb address, a sought after postcode in the last decade.

The 31-year-old former Australia and State of Origin star ended his career in unflattering headlines last year after being axed by Cronulla for biosecurity breaches.
Already off contract and struggling for game time, the last breach all but sealed the 31-year-old’s fate after 13 seasons and 215 NRL games.
One of the best ball-running fullbacks in the NRL when at his peak at Canberra and St George Illawarra, Dugan played 12 State of Origins for NSW and as many Tests for Australia.

Almost from the start of his career with the Canberra Raiders Dugan had a ‘bad boy’ image.
After his early forced retirement Dugan told followers on social media he was looking forward to running his own business and doing community work.
In January the Daily Telegraph reported Dugan was working on the south coast of New South Wales as a concreter.
