St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has named a 23-man squad ahead of the Dragons' Round 18 clash against the Wests Tigers at Jubilee Oval, Kogarah on Sunday, July 15.
All five State of Origin representatives have been named to back up from Wednesday's clash, although this has also allowed coach McGregor to name two further players among his squad.
- Leeson Ah Mau to depart Dragons
- ISP team: Round 18 v Wentworthville Magpies
- Jersey Flegg team: Round 18 v Parramatta Eels
- Game Day Information: Round 18

Jason Nightingale has also been named on the wing, with Kurt Mann reverting to the interchange while Luciano Leilua has maintained his place in the 17 following last week's defeat to the Melbourne Storm.
The Dragons will face the Tigers at Jubilee Oval for the first time since 2012, with it also set to be Russell Packer's first game against his former club since departing at the end of last season.
