Drew included in extended Raiders

Utility Brad Drew has been named 18th man for Canberra's semi-final against a red-hot New Zealand Warriors at Aussie Stadium on Saturday night.

Drew missed last weekend's 30-18 loss to Melbourne after tearing a hamstring in a round 26 match against defending premiers Sydney Roosters. The Raiders have said they won't know until later this week whether Drew will be fit to play against the Warriors, who demolished the Bulldogs 48-22 on Saturday night.

Raiders squad: Clinton Schifcofske, Joel Monaghan, Jason Bulgarelli, Adam Mogg, Jamaal Lolesi, Michael Monaghan, Mark McLinden, Ryan O'hara, Simon Woolford (C), Luke Davico, Ruben Wiki, Ian Hindmarsh, Tyran Smith. Interchange: Sean Rutgerson, Terry Martin, Troy Thompson, Michael Hodgson, Brad Drew (one to be omitted).
