The Dragons will receive a boost with the return of utility Nathan Fien to the bench ahead of Friday night’s clash with Manly at Brookvale Oval.

The New Zealand international returns from a knee injury he sustained in round 10 against Penrith.

The Sea Eagles also have a big name returning from injury naming Kieran Foran to make his comeback from an ankle strain he sustained two weeks ago.

Both teams head into the match on the back of patchy form, with St George just getting home against Parramatta, and Manly receiving a massive shock being upset by the Panthers.

The two will also be heavily affected by suspension with Manly’s Steve Matai being given two weeks suspension for a grade four careless high tackle, and St George-Illawarra’s Matt Prior still sidelined because of his high shot on Jonathon Thurston.

The match kicks off at 7.30pm Friday night at Brookvale Oval.
