Sullivan to start, de Belin unavailable

The Dragons will be without Jack de Belin for what would have been his 200th NRL game with the veteran forward ruled out after picking up a head knock against Penrith on Sunday.

Ben Murdoch-Masila comes into the starting side in his place with Zane Musgrove joining the interchange.

Jayden Sullivan will again partner Ben Hunt in the halves after earning a late call-up into the side last week with Talatau Amone named 18th man.

Jack Bird and Blake Lawrie have both been named among the reserves as they look to return from injury.

Rabbitohs missing Origin stars

The Rabbitohs will be without Origin representatives Cameron Murray and Jai Arrow when they face the Dragons on Saturday afternoon.

Murray picked up a groin injury in their last-start win over the Titans whilst Arrow failed to finish the game due to an ankle issue.

Shaquai Mitchell will start at lock with Siliva Havili and Jed Cartwright joining the interchange.

Latrell Mitchell also remains out with a calf complaint that he picked up in the lead-up to Origin I last week.

Mika’s slice of try-scoring history

Dragons winger Mikaele Ravalawa became just the eighth player in club history to score 50 tries after crossing for a barnstorming double against the Panthers on Sunday night joining club legends Matt Cooper, Brett Morris, Jason Nightingale, Nathan Blacklock, Mark Gasnier, Ben Hornby and Ben Creagh.

Among all players to have played at least 50 games for the club, only Blacklock possesses a higher try-scoring strike rate than Ravalawa.

The 25-year-old made his NRL debut for the Dragons in Round 1, 2019 and has gone on to represent Fiji internationally and appear in 75 games for the club.

Ravalawa will be hoping to improve that tally against this weekend against the Rabbitohs – a side he has scored four tries against over his past four meetings.

Last time they met…

The last time that the two sides met was at WIN Stadium almost a year ago in a game that saw the Dragons leap out to an incredible 32-0 lead in less than half an hour of play thanks to a Mikaele Ravalawa double as well as tries to Ben Hunt, Jack de Belin, Moses Suli and Cody Ramsey.

The try-scoring ended after a ridiculous opening half-hour but it did not matter as the hosts came away with a comprehensive 32-12 win.

Now with interim coach Ryan Carr – who coached the Rabbitohs NYC team in 2017 – at the helm, the Dragons will this weekend be looking to replicate the same performance this Saturday at Kogarah that they put together on that memorable night in Wollongong.
