The Canberra Raiders have named their team for Friday’s match against the Newcastle Knights at GIO Stadium.

The Raiders have one change from their round 16 defeat to the Warriors, with Jarrad Kennedy replacing Joey Leilua on the bench. Leilua is ineligible for selection this weekend due to a contract stipulation and will be available for selection again in round 19.

Jordan Rapana has been cleared to return from an ankle injury, while Josh Papalii has been named to back up from State of Origin three on Wednesday night.
