Raiders name team for last game of 2011

The Canberra Raiders will be without Joel Thompson for their last game of the season, after the Raiders centre took the early guilty plea for his careless high tackle charge on Travis Burns last weekend.

Thompson will miss the one match with his early guilty plea, due to the fact that he had carry over points from a previous offence. His omission sees Danny Galea move into the right centre position, with Josh Papalii coming back into the starting line-up.

Raiders Coach David Furner said the loss of Thompson was disappointing for the team, however he believed Galea would fill the vacant centre spot comfortably this weekend.
