Settled: Dragons fullback Adam Quinlan. Picture: Christopher ChanST GEORGE Illawarra head to the Gold Coast and hope to plunder riches when they tackle the Titans at 3pm on Sunday at Robina.
Coach Paul McGregor has reinstated NSW stars Trent Merrin and Josh Dugan to the team after Origin duties.
Charly Runciman holds his spot in the team and moves to the wing with Dugan in the centres. Peter Mata’utia is dropped for Josh Dugan.
Lock Trent Merrin replaces Tyson Frizell, who had ankle surgery yesterday.
Frizell twisted his ankle while being tackled and was assisted from the field by the medical staff at Penrith on Saturday night. He will be out for up to eight weeks.
One player hitting his stride is fullback Adam Quinlan, who was sharp against the Panthers and he threw a brilliant around-the-corner pass to winger Jason Nightingale, who scored two tries in a beaten team.
Nightingale never ceases to amaze as Dragons’ most consistent footballer. No doubt about it.
NSW winger Brett Morris is making steady recovery with his injured shoulder and is expected back in round 21.
His pace, power and finishing ability, and talent to make ground from dummy half has been missed since he was injured in Origin I.
The Dragons coaching and medical staff are monitoring Dugan and Merrin after Origin.
