A promising young football player had to go to extreme measures on Friday evening to make a game, when a fiery crash caused chaos around the ground.

Dragons & bench forward Jeremy Latimore noticed that he was stuck in a huge traffic jam from the Princes Motorway to the Wollongong CBD where the dragons were going to defeat the Cowboys.

Latimore had missed his turn to Wollongong and said he was in bumper to bumper traffic, just 400 meters in 30 minutes.

He knew that if he reached his 50th NRL competition, he would have to take drastic measures.

Latimore left his car parked on the side of the Princes Motorway, jumped over the central reservation, and tried to lure cars and motorcycles.

& # 39; This boy Brett picked me up and we drove straight down the Towradgi road and it was massively recovered that way, so I said: & # 39; When I see someone on a motorcycle, I'm just going to ask them if they can give me a lift, & said Latimore.

& # 39; A boy drove by and I said, "Brother, can you drop me?"

& # 39; He looked at me, he wasn't that enthusiastic. Then he goes & # 39; "Everything for the dragons, go on the back".

& # 39; We've avoided some traffic and we've defeated some of the boys (to the stadium). & # 39;

Dragon coach Paul McGregor said that the traffic jam resulted in a number of players and that the team arrived late, including himself.

But the delay did not stop the dragons, claiming they had won the Cowboys eight points in their round-15 clash.

Photos showed bumper to bumper traffic along the main roads in Wollongong while people tried to dodge the highway or were already on their way to the game.

The traffic jam was the result of a fiery crash on the M1 Princes Motorway shortly after fourteen on Friday.
