Dragons name Origin stars for
St George Illawarra utility Shaun Timmins is set to play his 100th game for the Dragons when the red and whites travel south of the border to meet the Melbourne Storm at Olympic Park this Sunday.
Timmins, 28, will be presented with the ?golden boot? on June 4 when Saints play against the Warriors at WIN Stadium.
?It is a real honour to reach 100 games for the Dragons, something that is special to me,? said Timmins. ?It has taken a long time to get there because of injury but I am happy to have reached it?.
In a career which began in 1994, Timmins has played 86 games for the Steelers and 99 games for the Dragons, posting a first grade total of 187 match appearances to date.
Following the 2004 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain, France and the USA, Timmins announced his retirement from representative football, stating that he would be focussing on winning a premiership with the Dragons.
Coach Nathan Brown has named a strong side for this weekend?s match. Skipper Trent Barrett, front rowers Luke Bailey and Jason Ryles, and centre partners Matt Cooper and Mark Gasnier will all be backing up after Wednesday?s State of Origin encounter.
Previously sidelined with a hand injury, Corey Payne is also set to make a return.
