RAIDERS V COWBOYS, 7:50PM
RAIDERS: Matt Frawley dropped off the extended bench 24 hours out, which gives stability to Tom Starling’s role as the starting hooker. Hudson Young is still on the extended bench in an attempt to return from injury. His potential inclusion would likely push Elliott Whitehead back to lock and Ryan Sutton out of the side. Albert Hopoate, Jarrod Croker, Trey Mooney and Peter Hola were the other players cut on Wednesday evening. UPDATE: 1-17; Kris 18th man
COWBOYS: Reuben Cotter was a game day callup to the starting side last round. It could happen again depending on whether they want to ease Coen Hess back in on his return from a shoulder injury and play him from the bench with Taumalolo at prop and Cotter at lock. Riley Price, Daejarn Asi, Ben Condon, Ben Hampton and Tomas Chester were the first players cut. Update: Cotter prop, Luki edge, McLean/Gilbert bench; Hampton 18th man
