St George Illawarra coach Paul McGregor has named his mandatory 21-man squad ahead of the Dragons' Round 20 clash against the Parramatta Eels at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Kogarah on Sunday, August 4.
Patrick Kaufusi and Jeremy Latimore (knee) have been named to return on the bench for the Dragons, in an otherwise unchanged team.
