Dragons centre Mark Gasnier will have a medical before he is given clearance to make a comeback from a quad tear to play against the Sharks at Toyota Park tomorrow night.
Gasnier did not complete the team training session today but is hopeful of playing his first match since the Dragons lost to Parramatta three weeks ago.
If Gasnier does not play, Chris Nero will start in his place, with David Howell, named in the spot earlier in the week, moving back to Premier League.
Dragons coach Nathan Brown has confirmed one other change to his starting line-up with teenager Ben Creagh, who made his NRL debut last week, being brought up from Premier League in place of John Wilshere, who was named there on Tuesday.
Brown still has one player to omit from the bench which he will decide on tomorrow.
