The Dragons had ample opportunities to beat the Cowboys last week but ending up losing in a tight game, while the Raiders are coming off a loss to competition heavyweights the Roosters. Although the Red V can no longer make the finals, they will be looking to show their worth after Anthony Griffin was named new head coach for the next two years. Heading into the finals, the Raiders are still in the hunt for a top-four finish and will be aiming to bounce back with a solid win.
