Dragons lose two for Charity

St George Illawarra coach Nathan Brown has been forced to make two late changes to his starting line-up for Saturday night's Charity Shield clash with South Sydney.

Sam Isemonger's Dragons debut has been put on hold due to a hamstring strain while hooker Dean Young will miss the match with a minor ankle problem. Ashton Sims moves from the bench to the starting line-up to replace Isemonger, with Andrew Price the new fresh reserve.

Aaron Gorrell will start in place of Young, with George Ndaira, who played in the club's premiership-winning Jersey Flegg team last year, added to the bench.
