Dragons welcome back star trio

St George Illawarra will welcome back international stars Shaun Timmins, Mark Gasnier and Jason Ryles for Sunday's National Rugby League derby against Cronulla at Kogarah.

Ryles hasn't played since tearing his hamstring in round one, while Timmins and Gasnier both missed the Dragons' ANZAC Day win over the Sydney Roosters with leg injuries.

While Dragons coach Nathan Brown fully expects Timmins and Ryles to play, Gasnier rates himself an 80 per cent chance of taking the field. He'll make a final decision on Saturday morning.
