St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has amended his squad to 19 ahead of the Dragons' Round 10 clash against the Newcastle Knights at Mudgee's Glen Willow Stadium.
As announced earlier on Saturday, Korbin Sims won't play despite his efforts to return from a broken arm within the six-week mark.
Jonus Pearson is the other player to drop out of the initial squad named on Tuesday.
