St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has confirmed that Jai Field and Luciano Leilua will drop out of the Dragons' squad to play the Parramatta Eels at WIN Stadium, Wollongong on Sunday night.

A rib injury suffered at training late this week has ruled Field out of the Round 2 clash, with Kurt Mann replacing him in the Dragons' 17.

Leilua is the other man to drop out of the initial 21-man squad that was named on Tuesday.
