Canberra duo Josh Dugan and Blake Ferguson will return to the Raiders line-up this Saturday for the match against Wests Tigers at Canberra Stadium, after serving a one week ban for breaching the clubs alcohol policy.

Dugan returns to the team in a new position at five-eighth, with Reece Robinson remaining at fullback and Josh McCrone shifting back to halfback.

Ferguson comes back into the team and will play in the centres, with both Edrick Lee and Dimitri Pelo retaining their wing positions after strong performances last weekend.

Joel Thompson moves from the centres back into the second row, with Bronson Harrison shifting back to the bench.

Sam Mataora has been named at 18th man, while Sam Williams will play for Mounties in the NSW Cup.

Raiders Coach David Furner said Dugan and Ferguson have fronted the Club Player Representatives (CPR) and they're satisfied with the punishment that was handed down last week.

"Both Josh and Blake have met with the CPR, they've accepted their punishment of missing last weekend and we now move on to focus on the Tigers this weekend," Furner said.
