Canberra Raiders hooker Travis Waddell will miss the next two weeks of rugby league action, after he was ruled out today with a shoulder injury for Sunday's must win match against the Dragons at Canberra Stadium.
Waddell's injury means Glen Buttriss returns to the Raiders squad this weekend, with Co-Captain Alan Tongue set to start his first match since returning from injury two weeks ago.
Joe Picker will start the match in the second row this week with Danny Galea moving back to the interchange bench, while Shaun Fensom has been named as 18th man.
Raiders Coach David Furner said the loss of Waddell was disappointing, but said Glen Buttriss would slot straight back into the side without too much disruption.
