The Canberra Raiders face the Sydney Roosters at Suncorp Stadium this Sunday afternoon as part of the NRL’s magic round.
Jordan Rapana is back in the team after he was cleared to return from a rib injury, which sees Bailey Simonsson shift to the interchange bench.
Michael Oldfield will remain in the centres for the Raiders, with Joey Leilua ruled out indefinitely with a neck injury. He will be assessed weekly to see when he may be able to return.
John Bateman has been officially ruled out for 6-8 weeks after suffering an eye-socket injury, with the English International undergoing surgery. This sees Hudson Young with his first opportunity to start for the Raiders, after an impressive 55 minutes against the Panthers in round eight covering for the injured Bateman.
