Blake Le Cornu and Tom Wilmore will return from injury as Albury look to keep their season alive.
The Steamers back line has been boosted by the pair ahead of their elimination final clash with Griffith at Conolly Rugby Complex on Saturday.
Both were close to returning last week, but coach Paul Musarra thought he had no choice but to bring them both straight back into the side.
"They have to start," Musarra said.
"Their experience will get them through more than their fitness but they need to be there.
"It's sudden death and I need to pick what I think is my best 15."
Musarra believes defence will be the key to victory.
"We have to defend relentlessly against them," he said.
"We know they are capable of scoring tries and have some good ball carriers so our focus has been defending for 80 minutes and the old cliche of moving their bigger bodies around the park."
The ledger is one win apiece heading into the clash with Griffith scoring a narrow come-from-behind win on the Border when the teams last met.
