Dragons: Australian rugby sevens star Emma Tonegato has been handed the No.1 jersey by Jamie Soward as part of a quality backline which features All Stars sensation Jaime Chapman in the centres and two-time Indigenous All Star Taliah Fuimaono at five-eighth.

Kezie Apps captains the side and headlines a forward pack which includes PNG international Elsie Albert and Dragons mainstays Shaylee Bent and Holli Wheeler in the back row.

Former Rooster Quincy Dodd arrives at the club after three years at the Tricolours and provides a one-two punch with Keeley Davis at hooker.

NRLW Teams: Dragons v Titans

Titans: Former premiership-winning Bronco and 2018 Dally M winner Brittany Breayley-Nati captains the side from hooker. Her wife, New Zealand international and 2018 grand final player of the match Kimiora Breayley-Nati, is the halfback. 

Rugby convert and 2020 NRLW sensation Evania Pelite starts at fullback with veteran Karina Brown adding star power on the wing. Prop Shannon Mato is coming off a mighty stint for the Maori All Stars while Steph Hancock, Georgia Hale, Jessika Elliston and Shaniah Power make up one of the most impressive and experienced benches in the competition.

Prolific winger Julia Robinson is out to add to her career tally of five NRLW tries, second only to team-mate Upton with six.

Knights: Last year's BHP Premiership player of the year Romy Teitzel will captain the Knights in her first game for the club. The competition newcomers have named a powerful squad which includes her North Queensland Gold Stars team-mate Tahlulah Tillett at halfback alongside exciting Kiwi Autumn-Rain Stephens Daly in the No.6. 

Veteran Krystal Rota packs down at hooker alongside Caitlan Johnston, who is 15 years her junior, and former Warrior Annetta Nu'uausala, the younger sister of Frank-Paul Nu'auasala who played NRL with the Roosters and Raiders.

Plenty of experience on the bench with NSW and Australian rep Kirra Dibb and four-Test Kiwi Fern Charlotte Scanlan.

NRLW Teams: Knights v Eels

Eels: Fullback Botille Vette-Welsh plus props Kennedy Cherrington and Tommaya Kelly-Sines are coming off mighty efforts in the recent All Stars clash while hooker Nita Maynard and centre Jocephy Daniels also acquitted themselves well.

Centre Tiana Penitani, halfback Maddie Studdon, winger Rikeya Horne, bench prop Filomina Hanisi and lock and captain Simaima Taufa are the other big-name recruits.
