Widdop hit by another shoulder injury

28th March 2019, 15:06 by Tom Hill

Gareth Widdop is set for another spell in the treatment room after dislocating his right shoulder for the third time in eight months.

The England international suffered the injury while playing for St George Illawarra in their 25-24 win over Brisbane in the third round of the NRL on Thursday.

Widdop went down after a tackle and he is now set for further scans as the Dragons try to find the best solution.

The 30-year-old is due to sign for Warrington on a three-year contract in 2020 and Dragons coach Paul McGregor admitted there were serious concerns due to the clear pain the player was in.

He told reporters: "I'm not a doctor but he's uncomfortable. You don't ever want to see your captain and playmaker - who has been our best player for a number of years - lying on a bench with a dislocated shoulder.

"It's sad and part of the game we don't enjoy."
