UPDATE 22/4/17 @10.10am: The Dragons have confirmed that Widdop accepted the 4-year-deal.
The NRL player market is heating up, and the Dragons don’t want to take any chances with their five-eighth.
Though they’re yet to reach an agreement, Fox reporter James Hooper said “he’s going to re-sign”. The increased offer is believed to be for a further four years.
