Dragons finalise Round 1 NRL team list

St George Illawarra Dragons NRL head coach Shane Flanagan has finalised his squad to face the Gold Coast Titans at Cbus Super Stadium in Round 1.

Final Team: No changes from the 24-hour update with Jesse Marschke named as the replacement player.

Blake Lawrie will be given another week to recover from a rib cartilage injury. As a result, Jack de Belin shifts to prop and Tom Eisenhuth to lock. Raymond Faitala-Mariner starts on an edge and Ben Murdoch-Masila comes into the 17 on the bench.

Viliami Fifita has been named to make his NRL debut off the interchange whilst newcomers Kyle Flanagan, Tom Eisenhuth, and Raymond Faitala-Mariner have been named to make their club debuts.

Fellow recruits Hame Sele (hamstring) and Luciano Leilua (suspension) are unavailable for the side's season opener.

Tyrell Sloan again occupies the fullback spot with Zac Lomax and Mikaele Ravalawa his wingers.

Flanagan partners skipper Ben Hunt in the halves whilst Jacob Liddle (hamstring) has been named to start.
