St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has named a 23-man squad ahead of the Dragons' Round 14 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Monday, June 11.
Jack de Belin, Paul Vaughan, Tyson Frizell (all New South Wales) and Ben Hunt's (Queensland) inclusion in State of Origin I on Wednesday night has allowed McGregor to name two more players than usual.
If he makes it through Game One of the Origin series, Dragons halfback Ben Hunt will play his 200th NRL game.
While the team remains unchanged from their last start loss to the Panthers a fortnight ago, Patrick Herbert and Darren Nicholls have been named in the reserves and may potentially make their NRL debuts.
