Jack De Belin played in his first match of rugby league in 987 days, as he came off the bench during the NSW Cup clash between the Dragons and Wests Magpies at Lidcombe Oval on Saturday.
This came following the announcement on Thursday from the Office of the Director of Public Prosecution (NSW) that the Jack de Belin court matter would not proceed to a third trial.
The NRL confirmed the imminent expiration of de Belin's no-fault stand down sanction.
"Today's outcome concludes a tumultuous period for all involved in the Jack de Belin matter," Dragons CEO Ryan Webb said.
"I wish to thank the support received by our partners, members and fans throughout this entire process."
The Dragons also confirmed that de Belin will remain at the club until at least the end of the 2023 season following the DPP's decision.
De Belin took to the field midway through the first half, showing out in his 45-minute stint that knocked the rust off.
His last appearance was on September 15, 2018.
Dragons team-mates Ben Hunt, Zac Lomax, Tariq Sims and Andrew McCullough watched on.
As did St George head coach Anthony Griffin.
