St George Illawarra interim coach Dean Young has finalised his team ahead of the Dragons' Round 17 clash against the North Queensland Cowboys at Queensland Country Bank Stadium, Townsville on Sunday, September 6.

The Dragons will celebrate hooker Ben Hunt's 250th NRL game this weekend as well as the 50th NRL/Dragons game of back-rower Jacob Host.

Trent Merrin (hamstring) will miss this weekend otherwise, which will allow for the return of Tyrell Fuimaono from suspension.

Tristan Sailor and Eddie Blacker join Max Feagai and Jayden Sullivan as the players to drop out of Tuesday's initial 21-man squad.
