The Raiders will be desperate for victory to keep their slim finals chances alive as the Dragons roll into the nation's capital minus one of their best.

Raiders back‑rower Josh Papalii has been named and Josh Hodgson is also expected to return from injury in the No.9 jersey.

The Dragons have taken a more cautious approach with Tyson Frizell not named to back‑up from Origin.

Blues teammate Josh Dugan has been named on an extended bench and is joined by Paul Vaughan who has a chance to return from injury but we could see a backline reshuffle if Dugan starts at fullback.

The Raiders take on the Dragons at 9.50pm tomorrow night, while the Panthers meet the Warriors at 8pm.

In other matches, on Saturday the Knights face the Broncos at 7.30pm, the Titans will take on the Sharks at 9.30pm, on Sunday the Sea Eagles play the Tigers at 4pm while the Cowboys take on the Rabbitohs at 6pm.
