The Canberra Raiders have named their squad for their round nine match against the Melbourne Storm at GIO Stadium on Saturday night.

Kai O’Donnell will make his NRL debut and become Raider #365 after he was named on the interchange bench for the injured Emre Guler, who will miss 8-10 weeks with a fractured ankle.

Sia Soliola will undergo surgery for facial fractures this week and is expected to miss 12-16 weeks, which could possibly see his season come to an end. Dunamis Lui returns to the starting side for Saturday night to replace Soliola.

Jordan Rapana has recovered from a calf strain and has been named on the interchange bench. Curtis Scott moves into the extended squad alongside Tom Starling, Matt Frawley and Darby Medlyn.
