Michael Witt is back from Britain

ONE player who might be a surprise packet for the Dragons this year is goal-kicking half Michael Witt.

The former Parramatta, Manly and Warriors playmaker has spent the past three years playing in the British Super League.

He signed a one year-deal in late November.

The 30-year-old has played 175 senior matches in Australia and England, scoring 50 tries, kicking 420 goals and landing nine field goals for 1049 career points.

Given a new NRL lifeline at 30, Witt, provides experience and options for coach Steve Price in the halves.

Sam Williams at No.7 and Gareth Widdop at No.6 are expected to be the frontliners for the first- and second-receivers’ roles.

But Witt is a possible cover for not only the halves but fullback and hooker roles.

From all reports Witt has been training well in the off-season at his new club.
