Dragons Team For Tigers

The St George Illawarra Dragons will start the new season with several new faces making their debut for the Club in the home clash against Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park on Sunday.

Head Coach Steve Price has named an 18-man squad for the upcoming fixture which will include the debut of new halves pairing Gareth Widdop and Michael Witt and Adam Quinlan named at fullback.

Additionally, Dylan Farrell is poised to play his first competitive match for the Red V in the centres where he will be paired-up with Gerard Beale.

Furthermore, new off-season additions Joel Thompson and Mike Cooper have both been named on an extended five-man interchange.

“The players are excited that the new season is now only days away after a long, tough pre-season,” said Price. "It is a new season, a new squad and a new challenge for us all".

“They players have all pushed each other every single day of the pre-season, there has been great competition for spots and the players chosen have earned their place in the squad for Sunday".
