Nabuli Named To Face Tigers
St George Illawarra Dragons winger Eto Nabuli has been named to face Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park on Saturday, September 5.
The Fiji Bati international will make his twelfth appearance for the Club and is part of an extended 19-man squad for the home fixture which also sees utility Jake Marketo (suspension) returning to the line-up to pair Tyson Frizell in the second-row.
Additionally, prop George Rose is poised to make his 150th first-grade appearance after being named on an extended six-man interchange which also includes hooker Craig Garvey and winger Justin Hunt.
Dragons second-rower Joel Thompson will continue to remain under observation as he continues his rehabilitation after scans confirmed he had suffered a minor hamstring strain last round.
The Dragons will proudly be wearing #PurpleOurWorld socks to raise awareness for pancreatic cancer when they take to the field against the Tigers.
#PurpleOurWorld is an awareness initiative partnered with the Avner Nahmani Pancreatic Cancer Foundation and GI Cancer Institute promoting the understanding of pancreatic cancer.
