St George Illawarra Dragons 26-12 New Zealand Warriors

Gareth Widdop contract

Report

Gareth Widdop starred for St George yesterday despite being involved in a car crash on the way to their game against New Zealand Warriors.

The England international’s car was written off after a severe accident which he emerged from unscathed, the 28-year-old then went onto captain the Dragons to a crucial win against the Warriors.

Widdop kicked five goals in the 26-12 victory as the Red V moved up to third on the NRL ladder with their third victory in four matches this season.

Tries from Paul Vaughan, Tim Lafai, Josh McCrone and Josh Dugan were enough against a Warriors side who posted scores through Ken Maumalo and Issac Luke.

After the match Dragons head coach Paul McGregor paid credit to Widdop with the Halifax born stand-off stating that¬†“I’ll be riding my push bike to training for the next few weeks.”
