The Canberra Raiders will welcome back fullback Josh Dugan to the team this weekend, for the clash against the Melbourne Storm at Olympic Park.
Dugan missed Monday night's 20-0 loss to the Manly Sea Eagles with an infection to a boil under his armpit, but has been told by medical staff that he will be fit and healthy to take his place against the Storm.
Raider's second row forward Sam Mataora has retained his place in the side after his first match for the Raiders this season, with Tom Learoyd-Lahrs hopeful of only missing this weekend's match against Melbourne after he missed Monday night with a fractured eye-socket.
Speaking at today's Recovery session Raiders prop Brett White said spirits were still high amongst the Raiders camp, despite the side suffering their eighth straight loss against Manly last night.
