Raiders name team to tackle Roosters

The Canberra Raiders have made just one change to their side for the match against the Roosters on Monday night, with Tom Learoyd-Lahrs returning to the starting side for the injured David Shillington.

Shillington will miss two weeks after scans revealed a small tear in his pectoral, but fortunately it's not as bad as initially though and he won't be out for as long as originally expected.

With Learoyd-Lahrs moving to the starting side it also gives Trevor Thurling an opportunity to return to the bench, with Josh Miller named 18th man.

Raiders Coach David Furner said there was little hope of a return from fullback Josh Dugan and said he still needed more time to be 100 per cent fit.
