St George Illawarra Dragons and England RL pivot Gareth Widdop is excited to kick off the three-game series against New Zealand this weekend.

Widdop booted 24 points for England in their 84-4 point humiliation of France on the weekend. But his side is now firmly focused on taking it to the Kiwis on home soil.

The first test match against New Zealand will be played at the KC Stadium in Hull this Sunday (UK Time).
