St George Illawarra coach Anthony Griffin has finalised his 17 ahead of the Dragons' Round 7 traditional Anzac Day clash against the Sydney Roosters at the Sydney Cricket Ground (4pm).
Josh Kerr played Knock On Effect Cup NSW on Sunday and has been ruled out. George Burgess will start in the front row. Tariq Sims and Josh McGuire have also swapped between the back row and the interchange.
Tyrell Fuimaono joins Tyrell Sloan, Jayden Sullivan, Jackson Ford and Cody Ramsey as the other players to drop out of Tuesday's initial 24-man squad. Tautau Moga is 18th man.
The official Anzac Day ceremony will commence at 3:30pm. It is encouraged that tickets be pre-purchased ahead of the anticipated sell out. The ADF will also play Turkey in the curtain-raiser (1:50pm).
The Sydney Roosters currently hold the Anzac Cup following their 34-10 win over the Dragons last year.
Since 2002, the two teams have met on Anzac Day 19 times. The Dragons have won 11 Anzac Cup games to the Roosters' eight. The Ashton-Collier Spirit of Anzac Medal will again be awarded to the Man of the Match.
St George Illawarra fans will again be given the opportunity to bid on player-worn commemorative jerseys leading into the NRL's Anzac Round. The auction will commence on Wednesday, April 20 with a proportion of the funds to be donated to Invictus.
