The Canberra Raiders have named their squad for Thursday night’s match against the Melbourne Storm at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

Bailey Simonsson returns to the side this weekend on the wing for Semi Valemei, who will miss 1-2 weeks with a throat injury.

Sia Soliola has also been named to make a return to the team this week on the bench, replacing Elijah Anderson who made his NRL debut last weekend.

Corey Horsburgh and Ryan James will be named in the Bulldogs squad this week, after both players were given permission to join Canterbury on a short-term loan deal.

The deal which is for two weeks, allows the pair to get some much-needed game time while providing the Bulldogs with a chance to fill some positional shortcomings in their squad due to injury and unavailability.
