NRLW Late Mail: Semi Finals

Knights v Dragons, Sunday at Suncorp Stadium

Knights: Tamika Upton has been named to return from a calf injury and will play. Her inclusion sees Shanice Parker shift to centre in the only change to last week's team. Caitlin Moran moved into the 17 on Saturday and will come from the bench, with Makenzie Weale going back to 18th player. 

Dragons: Mass changes after coach Jamie Soward opted to rest several players last week, while some also return from injury. Captain Kezie Apps and Kiwi Ferns centre Page McGregor are both back in starting roles after a break last week while Talei Holmes (knee) also returns. Prop Tegan Dymock (shoulder) was named on Tuesday but has dropped out, her place taken by Tara McGrath-West with Zali Hopkins added to the bench. Centre Keele Brown also dropped out on Saturday, replaced by Shontelle Stowers.

Roosters v Eels, Sunday at Suncorp Stadium

Roosters: Star fullback Samantha Bremner and halfback Raecene McGregor are back on deck after being rested last week, which means Jada Taylor drops out of the squad and Jocelyn Kelleher reverts to the bench after playing in halves against the Titans. Leianne Tufuga returns to the wing in place of Shannon Rose and Mya Hill-Moana starts in the front row, which bumps Kalosipani Hopoate back to the bench, although they could revert back on game day. No changes in Saturday's 24-hour update.

Eels: Co-captain Tiana Penitani has dropped out with a quad injury, her place in the centres taken by Abbi Church. Lock Simaima Taufa looks set to play despite picking up an ankle injury last week. Filomina Hanisi and Seli Mailangi are named to start but could switch back to the bench prior to kick-off, as was the case last week.
