Gareth’s back in the game

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NRL -

EV­ERY­ONE loves an NRL re­demp­tion story.

In Buzz Roth­field’s top 50 NRL play­ers for 2018, there are four. That’s four play­ers who fea­tured in the an­nual list back in 2016 but didn’t make the cut last year.

Well, against all odds, they’re back.

Dragons play­maker and English in­ter­na­tional Gareth Wid­dop was ranked 25th in the 2016 list though, much like the Red V at­tack, fell apart.

But af­ter a stel­lar 2017 sea­son in which he scored 10 tries and notched 18 try-as­sists to make the Dragons the sec­ondbest at­tack­ing club in the game, Wid­dop is back where he be­longs in the top 50. And there are three other play­ers just like him — from dif­fer­ent clubs and dif­fer­ent po­si­tions.

Check out where Wid­dop and the rest of Roth­field’s top 50 NRL play­ers rank for 2018 in Tues­day’s edi­tion of The Daily Tele­graph.
