Canberra have left dynamic playmaker Anthony Milford out of their squad for the NRL's Auckland Nines tournament.

Milford and fellow World Cup star Josh Papalii have been rested from the two-day event starting on February 15, so they can best prepare for the start of the NRL premiership.

Other high-profile omissions from the Raiders Nines team include Terry Campese, Shaun Fensom, Josh McCrone, Jack Wighton and Edrick Lee.

Goal-kicking centre Jarrod Croker has been chosen to captain the Raiders for the first time in the Nines, in a side that also features electric winger Reece Robinson and a number of young prospects coming through the club.

New coach Ricky Stuart won't travel with the Nines team, preferring to remain with the remainder of the squad ahead of Canberra's trial match against Newcastle on February 22.
