David Milne replaces Dugan for Raiders

The Canberra Raiders have been forced to make changes to their team for their round 24 clash against the Gold Coast, with injuries to Josh Dugan and Josh Miller forcing a reshuffle of the side to take on the Titans at Skilled Park.

David Milne returns to the NRL team this weekend for the first time since round two in what will be his 50th NRL match, after Dugan was ruled out for one week with a groin strain.

Joe Picker comes back onto the interchange bench this weekend for Josh Miller who could miss the remainder of the season with a collarbone injury, with Michael Picker retaining his spot on the bench after a solid debut performance last weekend. arrad Kennedy has been named 18th man for the match and will travel with the team to the Gold Coast.

Raiders Coach David Furner said the loss of Dugan for a week was disappointing, but said he expects David Milne to step up against the Titans on Saturday night.
