Gareth Widdop opened the scoring for the Dragons in Round 6.

England international Gareth Widdop, along with NSW and Australia pair Josh Dugan and Tyson Frizell are all set to line up for St George Illawarra in their Round 13 Telstra Premiership clash with Wests Tigers on Saturday afternoon.

‌Both Dugan and Frizell made it through the opening game of the 2017 Holden State of Origin series unscathed, and have been named to start at fullback and in the back row respectively.

Widdop hasn't played since injuring his knee in the Red V's Anzac Day loss to the Roosters, and will take his place at five-eighth, pushing Kurt Mann to the centres.

The reshuffle means Jason Nightingale will revert to the wing, with Taane Milne and Tariq Sims dropping back to the bench. Kalifa Faifai Loa and Jacob Host shift back to the reserves, while Jai Field and Blake Lawrie are out of the squad altogether.

Aaron Woods and James Tedesco are set to play for Wests Tigers, with Matt Eisenhuth and Jordan Rankin dropping out of the extended squad named on Tuesday.

Clubs have until one hour before kick-off to select their final 17-man squads.
