St George Illawarra Dragons Head Coach Steve Price has made several changes to the line-up against the Parramatta Eels at Pirtek Stadium, Parramatta on Saturday.

Dragons duo Benji Marshall will make his Red V debut after being named in halfback in lieu of Sam Williams.

The New Zealand international is joined by fellow Club debutant Peter Mata'utia who will play on the winger as replacement for Jason Nightingale who did not overcome his knee injury in time.

Dragons prop Mike Cooper has been named on the interchange as replacement for Jack Stockwell who was ruled out earlier this week with a minor hairline fracture in his foot.
