NRL team: Round 7 v New Zealand Warriors

St George Illawarra Dragons coach Paul McGregor has named his mandatory 21-man squad to face the New Zealand Warriors on April 20 at Mt Smart Stadium.

The game will kick-off at 6pm (AEST)/8pm (NZST) for what will be skipper Gareth Widdop's 100th NRL game as a Dragon.

The current season's NRL top pointscorer Widdop debuted for the Red V in Round 1, 2014 and has only missed four games since joining the club from the Melbourne Storm.

"Geez my time here has gone extremely quickly but I consider it a huge honour to play 100 games for the Dragons," Widdop said.

"It's certainly been a rollercoaster but my family and I have enjoyed every second of it and I've loved my football here since my arrival."

The only change to the 21-man squad named prior to the Dragons' 40-20 win over the Sharks in Round 6 is that Mitchell Allgood has been named in place of Reece Robson.
