St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has named his mandatory 21-man squad ahead of the Dragons' Round 2 clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah on March 21.

Indigenous All Stars representative Josh Kerr (St George Illawarra player #220) will make his NRL debut from the interchange after Tyson Frizell lacerated a teste in the Dragons' last start loss to the Cowboys.

Blake Lawrie will start the game at lock, with Mitch Allgood named as the new face in the Dragons' reserves.

Being the Dragons' first home game for season 2019, and the first of five fantastic games scheduled for Kogarah, be sure to reserve your ticket now!
