- England international Gareth Widdop has re-signed with the St George Illawarra Dragons for the next four Australian National Rugby League seasons, the club said Saturday. Widdop will remain with the current competition leaders until the end of the 2021 season. Widdop, 28, has been an integral member of the Dragons since his arrival from the Melbourne Storm in 2014 and became captain of the club this season. He has played 79 games for the Dragons and recently became the second-highest pointscorer in St George Illawarra history and is now on track to surpass Jamie Soward's record of 977 points.
