CFMEU Canberra Raiders Coach Neil Henry has made mass changes to the Raiders line-up for this weekends clash against the Rabbitohs at Telstra Stadium, with seven new faces added to the team that went down 46-30 against Manly last weekend.
Bronx Goodwin is set to make his first grade debut on Saturday night after being named on the wing for the Green Machine, while David Milne makes his return to first grade after spending most of 2006 in Premier League.
Scott Logan returns to the front row after spending two weeks on the side line with a neck injury, while Matt Bickerstaff plays his first NRL game for the club after a successful return in the Premier League last weekend.
Michael Weyman also returns after a week in Premier League to the Raiders bench, while Glen Turner has been named 18th man, recovering from a hamstring injury.
Josh Miller and Troy Thompson have been shifted back to the bench after they both started against Manly, while Michael Dobson, Ryan Hinchcliffe, and Trevor Thurling have been moved back to Premier League.
Ben Jones is out this week after suffering concussion against Manly, but should be available for the Raiders when they take on the Dragons in round 11.
