St George Illawarra recruit Gerard Beale will pull on the Red V for the first time since leaving the club at the end of 2014 after being named in the centres for Friday night's clash against the Tigers.
Beale's inclusion is one of many with the Dragons crippled by suspension and injury.
Tariq Sims returns from suspension in place of Josh Kerr who's serving a one week ban.
Rising star Junior Amone slips back to the bench for Beale while Brayden Wiliame replaces Max Feagai on the wing.
Cody Ramsey and Jaiyden Hunt have been named despite suffering head knocks last weekend.
Paul Vaughan has been named to start in the front row in place of benched prop Poasa Faamausili while Daniel Alvaro has switched places with Kaide Ellis who's the18th man.
