NRL Team List: Raiders v Bulldogs

Sia Soliola and Shaun Fensom will make their returns from injury this weekend, when the Raiders take on the Bulldogs at GIO Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

Fensom returns from a shoulder injury which kept him out of last week’s win against the Warriors, while Soliola will play his first match since breaking his arm in round five against the Bulldogs.

Soliola replaces Josh Papalii in the second row, with Papalii set to be named for Queensland tonight, while Fensom will return to start at lock for Luke Bateman who moves back to the bench.

With the inclusion of the two experienced forwards Clay Priest has been forced out of the 17 after some strong performances off the bench in the past few weeks. Priest has been named 18th man for this weekend, which highlights the strong depth at the club at the moment.
