St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has finalised the Dragons' 17 to face the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Lottoland on Sunday, June 16.

Jordan Pereira and Jeremy Latimore are the final two players to make way, with Luciano Leilua named to return from the bench after missing last week due to disciplinary reasons.

Korbin Sims and Blake Lawrie have swapped between the interchange and the front row.

Lachlan Timm and Josh Kerr were the other two players to drop out of the initial 21-man squad on Saturday.

Centre Zac Lomax was ruled out on Friday due to a broken thumb. The NRL granted the Dragons approval for Lachlan Maranta to replace Lomax.

Maranta will become St George Illawarra player No. 223 against the Sea Eagles, and the 1100th player to represent either St George, Illawarra or St George Illawarra.
