Dragons coach Paul McGregor has finalised his 18-man squad - which features plenty of youth and experience - ahead of this weekend's NRL Nines in Perth.
New St George-Illawarra captain Cameron McInnes has recovered from his broken leg and will lead a squad headlined by Nines internationals Ben Hunt and Tyson Frizell (Australia), Tim Lafai (Samoa) and Brayden Wiliame (Fiji).
As announced on Sunday, two-try premiership hero Jason Nightingale will come out of retirement for the competition.
At the other end of the scale, young guns Euan Aitken, Mat Dufty, Mikaele Ravalawa, Jason Saab and Tristan Sailor will be looking to make their mark at the Nines.
Development players Adam Clune and Jayden Sullivan - along with Dragons' reigning U/20s player of the year Cody Ramsey - will also get their shot at playing against the NRL's top teams.
The Dragons will kick off their Nines campaign against the Sharks on Friday before facing the Parramatta Eels on Saturday afternoon. The finals will get under way late that day.
Dragons' NRL Nines squad:
Euan Aitken, Adam Clune, Matt Dufty, Jackson Ford, Tyson Frizell, Tyrell Fuimaono, Ben Hunt, Josh Kerr, Tim Lafai, Blake Lawrie, Cameron McInnes, Jason Nightingale, Cody Ramsey, Mikaele Ravalawa, Jason Saab, Tristan Sailor, Jayden Sullivan and Brayden Wiliame.
