Dragons pivot Widdop out for six weeks

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 26/04/2017 Steve Zemek

St George Illawarra's flying start to the NRL season has been dealt a massive blow with in-form five-eighth Gareth Widdop ruled out for six weeks with a left knee injury.

Widdop has been diagnosed with a medial ligament strain after going down in the Dragons' 13-12 Anzac Day golden-point loss to the Sydney Roosters.

The Dragons now face a massive struggle without their star No.6 with statistics showing he has either scored or had a hand in more than half of their points over the first eight rounds.
