preg_match('/siteUserList.cgi\?group=site177&?(\d\d+)?/', $QUERY_STRING)

that will match the following criteria:
     if there is a "&" sign
     OR a "number with more than 1 digit"
     OR both an "&" sign AND a "number with more than 1 digit"

If you only want it to match if there is BOTH an "&" sign AND a "number 
with more than 1 digit", it should be like this:

preg_match('/siteUserList.cgi\?group=site177(&\d\d+)?/', $QUERY_STRING)
