St George Illawarra NRL Telstra Women's Premiership coach Daniel Lacey has finalised his 17 ahead of the Dragons' Round 2 clash against the Brisbane Broncos at Bankwest Stadium on Saturday, October 10 (4pm).
Shakiah Tungai (shoulder) and Rikeya Horne join Maddison Weatherall and Jade Etherden as the players to drop out of Tuesday's initial 21-woman squad.
Keeley Davis and Aaliyah Fasavalu-Fa'amausili will play five-eighth and hooker respectively, while Georgia Page (St George Illawarra woman's player #42) will make her debut from the interchange.
The Dragons will face the Broncos in NRLW football for the first time since the 2019 grand final, where Brisbane were big winners. Another defeat to Brisbane will bring an end to the Red V's 2020 Women's Premiership campaign.
