The Canberra Raiders have made changes to their squad for Friday’s match against the Knights at GIO Stadium.  

Aidan Sezer has been ruled out of the match with an oblique injury. Sezer will be replaced in the halves by Sam Williams who was originally named as 18th man. Sezer’s recovery time will be assessed weekly with a hope of return in 1-2 weeks.

Jack Murchie has also dropped off the extended squad list, which sees JJ Collins and Bailey Simonsson remain in the 19-man squad.
