Thompson Named For Redlands Trial

St George Illawarra Dragons second-rower Joel Thompson  is excited by the opportunity to be involved in the pre-season fixture against Wynnum-Manly Seagulls at Pinklands Oval, Redlands on Saturday, February 6.

The five-time NRL Indigenous All-Star is the second player named for the fixture against the Queensland Intrust Super Cup opposition and will join captain Gareth Widdop who will lead the team.

Widdop To Lead Dragons At Redlands

“I’m excited to lace-up the boots as the pre-season has been tough so far but it’s good to know the first trial arranged by Redland Juniors is around the corner,” said Thompson.

“We have a lot of great Red V Members and supporters up in Queensland who cheer us on and we can’t wait for their support against the Wynnum-Manly Seagulls.

“All the players know that there is still a fair bit of work that still needs to be done between now and the trials so we’re all focusing on every session.”

Tickets for the pre-season fixture, proudly organised by Redlands Juniors, are now available for purchase.

Capacity is limited so fans are encouraged to pre-purchase and get in early to avoid missing out.
