Late mail: NRLW Round 3 v Sydney Roosters

St George Illawarra coach Daniel Lacey has finalised his team for the Round 3 NRL Holden Women's Premiership clash against the Sydney Roosters at Allianz Stadium.

Skipper Sam Bremner (toe) has been ruled out again, with Honey Hireme shifting to fullback and Hannah Southwell moving to the centres. Kate Haren is the new face on the bench.

Asipau Mafi and Oneata Schwalger swaps between the bench and the front row, while Talia Atfield will act as 18th man.

Kicking off at 5:10pm, the Dragons require a win over the Roosters to qualify for next weekend's inaugural NRL Holden Women's Premiership grand final against the Brisbane Broncos. 

The Dragons (-14 points differential) can only afford a one point loss to the Roosters (-16) to otherwise qualify for the grand final on percentages.
