ST George Illawarra Intrust Super Premiership coach Mat Head has named his round 11 team to play the New Zealand Warriors on Saturday, May 19 at Henson Park from 1pm.
As part of the NSWRL Magic Weekend, the ISP Dragons have been forced into a forward pack reshuffle following Blake Lawrie's promotion into the NRL side to play the Canberra Raiders in Mudgee.
Head’s reshuffled squad features Group Seven products Reuben Garrick (Gerringong), Jai Field (Shellharbour), Jackson Ford (Gerringong) and Jayden Morgan (Albion Park-Oak Flats).
Also facing the Warriors this round are the Wayne Collins coach Dragons Jersey Flegg side, who will play at Belmore Sportsground from 2pm Saturday.
Following a two-week hiatus of the Flegg competition, the young Dragons will be ready to get their season back on track, as they currently sit outside the top eight.
Group Seven juniors in Collins’ squad include Jason Gillard (Nowra-Bomaderry), Sam McCann (Milton-Ulladulla), Juvilee Samiu (Kiama), Tyran Wishart (Gerringong), Tom Angel (Robertson), Jiye Ellis (Albion Park-Oak Flats) and Dylan Morris (Kiama).
