Raiders back at home to net Eels

The Canberra Raiders have made changes to their starting line-up for Saturday's clash against the Eels at Canberra Stadium, including naming rookie forward Josh Papalii in the starting side ahead of Kiwi international Bronson Harrison.

David Shillington comes back into the starting side for the Raiders after a successful return from injury two weeks ago, which sees Dane Tilse move to the bench.

Trevor Thurling and Josh Miller have been named on an extended bench but are not expected to play.

Raiders Coach David Furner said he has decided to shuffle his starting side based on performance and said it was exciting to see a rising star like Josh Papalii get a chance to start the game.
