St George Illawarra Dragons Head Coach Paul McGregor has named his finalised team for the fixture against the Penrith Panthers at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Sunday.

Dragons prop Dan Hunt will make his 150th first-grade appearance after being named in the starting forward-pack in lieu of Mike Cooper who reverts to the interchange.

Dragons second-rower Will Matthews has been rested for the encounter while hooker Shane Pumipi featured for the Illawarra Cutters in the NSW Cup on Saturday.
