St George Illawarra Dragons five-eighth Gareth Widdop is poised to play his hundredth first-grade game against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park on Sunday.

The England international is part of a 18-man squad named by Head Coach Paul McGregor for the home fixture which also sees prop Rory O’Brien named on a five-man interchange bench.

Widdop, 26, has additionally featured in all 30 first-grade fixtures for the Dragons since joining from the Melbourne Storm prior to the start of last season.

“I am very proud to be able to make my one hundredth first-grade appearance but I remain focused on playing my part against the Bulldogs,” said Widdop.

“As a young boy you always dream of playing at the highest level and I am lucky to be doing just that.

“The entire team are in the midst of preparing for what will be a tough match but we look forward to playing in front of such a large home crowd.”
