The St George Illawarra Dragons have named 22 year old Jason Kent (pictured) at fullback for the clash with Northern Eagles at Aussie Stadium (SFS) this Sunday.
Kent comes into the first grade for the fourth time this year, a move which sees utility back Ben Hornby move to half after he was brought in last week to replace regular fullback, Amos Roberts who is out for the season. The match has attracted some interest with eighth position up for grabs.
Currently The Eagles are in eighth position on 20 points and Saints are ninth on 19 points.
