St George Illawarra rising star Tristan Sailor is one of many NRL inclusions for the Dragons New South Wales Cup Preliminary Final this weekend although the 21-year-old remains unsigned for next year.

Sailor has indicated he wants to stay with the Dragons but is yet to agree to a new deal.

The utility back was a shining light for the Red V after playing the last three games of the NRL season and is an exciting long term option at fullback following the departure of Gareth Widdop.

Sailor has been named in the centres for the Dragons NSW Cup Grand Final qualifier against Newtown at Kogarah on Sunday afternoon.

Coach Mat Head has named a full strength side for the clash with Jonus Pearson, Reece Robson, Josh Kerr and Jackson Ford all returning to the starting side.
