St George Illawarra Dragons Head Coach Paul McGregor Paul McGregor has finalised his line-up for the local derby fixture against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Remondis Stadium, Cronulla on Sunday.

Dragons halfback Benji Marshall has been ruled out with a hamstring strain allowing local Albion Park Oak Flats Eagles junior Drew Hutchison to make his first-grade debut.

The NSW Blues U20 captain is joined by utility Charly Runciman who has been named on the wing as replacement for Justin Hunt, who shifts to the fullback role in lieu of Josh Dugan who has been rested.

Dragons second-rower Joel Thompson has also been rested as he recovers from a hamstring injury with Jake Marketo elevated from the interchange bench as his replacement.

Fellow second-rower Nathan Green is a late addition to the bench and joins prop Mark Ioane, hooker Heath L'Estrange and prop George Rose.
