Dragons: Anthony Griffin made a number of changes on Tuesday as he searches for answers after six losses on the trot.

Tyrell Sloan is the new fullback taking the place of Matt Dufty while Blake Lawrie returns from a hand injury at prop.

Loan recruit Freddy Lussick, who arrived from the Roosters, will share hooker duties with Jayden Sullivan.

Poasa Faamausili is the 18th man, with Gerard Beale dropping out of the squad on game day. Kaide Ellis and Josh Kerr were dropped when the squad was reduced to 19 players 24 hours out from kick-off.

The Dragons have won five of their past seven games against the Cowboys.

Cowboys: Jason Taumalolo (hand) is a confirmed starter at prop, with Kyle Feldt (jaw) and Murray Taulagi (concussion) also returning in a big boost for Todd Payten's battling side.

Feldt and Taulagi take over on the wings with Val Holmes sliding into the centres and Laitia Moceidreke dropping to the reserves. 

Holmes' move to the centres could be a glimpse into the future with Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow earning another start at fullback.

Ieremia Nanai will start in the second row with Heilum Luki to come off the bench.
Daejarn Asi is the 18th man. Tom Gilbert was omitted from the squad an hour before kick-off after Francis Molo and Moceidreke dropped out on Friday.

Storm: Late changes for the Storm with Isaac Lumelume and Tepai Moeroa moving into the 17 and Dean Ieremia and Chris Lewis dropping out.

Harry Grant will start at hooker with Brandon Smith going to lock and Lewis to 18th man.

Jahrome Hughes (concussion) and Tui Kamikamica (calf) have trained with the side this week with Kamikamica moved from the reserves to the interchange bench 24 hours before the match.

Hughes replaces Nicho Hynes at halfback, forcing the utility to the interchange.

Brandon Smith and Justin Olam are also back after they were rested in round 23.

Aaron Pene and Marion Seve were the two players left out 24 hours before the game.

The Storm will be aiming to break the premiership record of 19 consecutive wins.

Eels: The Eels are 1-17 with no late changes. 

Blake Ferguson (calf) has been named to return after overcoming a calf injury.

Ferguson's return is timely given Maika Sivo's year came to an abrupt end following confirmation he ruptured his ACL last week. 

Ray Stone replaces Will Smith on the bench which could see the forward utility share hooking duties with Joey Lussick.

Sean Russell and Jake Arthur were cut from the squad on Friday and Will Smith was the last man omitted an hour before kick-off, Oregon Kaufusi is 18th man.

The Eels have won two of their past three games against the Storm.
