"SERIOUS potential" is the phrase used to describe Raiders under-20s lock Tom Dahl.

The recommendation comes from A-grade Raiders players who have seen him at his best.

Dahl, 19, has played rugby league since his debut as an under-8s player for the Wallabys.

"We're pretty keen to get out there and play this weekend," Dahl said.

"I'm looking forward to getting out there and playing a good game."

The apprentice diesel fitter joined the under-21 Capras in pre-season and is aiming to get a run with the Capras in the long term.

"I've always loved footy and getting on the field with all of my mates," he said.

"If I can play high-level footy I'd take the opportunity with both hands."

Coach Peter White is looking forward to this weekend's 47th Battalion carnival and hosting top players from across regional Queensland.

"I encourage everyone to come out and support the guys and girls," he said.

"All of the best footballers in regional Queensland will be out on the field."

Kicking off at 10.30am on Saturday and 9.30am on Sunday, the 47th Battalion carnival will have three fields in use simultaneously at the Marley Brown Oval complex.
