Raiders back home to face Bulldogs

Raiders back home to face Bulldogs

The Canberra Raiders will use star Toyota Cup fullback Nathan Massey this weekend to replace Josh Dugan, who was named for the NSW Blues earlier this week.

Massey's inclusion is the only change to the Raiders line-up who defeated the Storm in Melbourne last weekend, with other Raiders rookies Sam Williams and Josh Papalii retaining their places in the team for this weekend.

Papalii made his NRL debut last weekend for the Raiders from the interchange bench, while Williams was a late inclusion for Matt Orford, who is again unavailable this weekend with a groin injury.

Massey will play his second game in the NRL after making his debut against Manly in round 9.

Raiders Coach David Furner said the team had two minor injury concerns from the Sea Eagles win, but expected both players to be fit for Friday night.
