St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has named his mandatory 21-man squad ahead of the Dragons' Round 8 clash against the Parramatta Eels at Bankwest Stadium.
Mikaele Ravalawa returns to the starting side after beginning last week's loss to the Sydney Roosters from the interchange. Zac Lomax shifts from the wing to the centre and Euan Aitken drops back to the bench.
The game will kick-off at 4:05pm, and will follow the Canterbury Cup NSW curtain-raiser between Wentworthville and the Dragons at 1:50pm.
Tim Lafai will celebrate his 150th NRL game this weekend, while Paul Vaughan will play his 50th game for the Dragons.
