FOR the second straight trial match, St George Illawarra's squad will have a distinct Group Seven Rugby League flavour.
A handful of the players who put in strong performances during Friday's 36-28 loss to Cronulla-Sutherland have been rewarded with another chance to pull on the Red V this week.
Gerringong trio Tyran Wishart, Jackson Ford and Tariq Sims have all once again been named in Anthony Griffin's 25-man squad, which will face the Parramatta Eels at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Thursday, February 18.
Rounding out the squad is new signing Andrew McCullough as well as are Daniel Alvaro, Junior Amone, Eddie Blacker, Kaide Ellis, Mat Feagai, Max Feagai, Zeik Foster, Jaiyden Hunt, Hayden Lomax, Sitiveni Moceidreke, Charly Runciman, Shaun Sauni-Esau, Tyrell Sloan, Brayden Wiliame, Cody Ramsey, Billy Brittain and Jack Bird - with it being latter three's first appearance in club colours in 2021.
Blacker will also be available to play despite taking the early plea on a dangerous contact charge from last week's trial, which kicks off at 6pm.
He will miss the first three weeks of the regular season.
