have named Dane Tilse at starting prop for this Sunday's clash against Brisbane at Canberra Stadium, after Tom Learoyd-Lahrs was ruled out with a hamstring injury.
Learoyd-Lahrs will miss a minimum of two weeks with a hamstring injury he sustained against the Knights on Sunday, with the prop expected to be fit for the round 24 clash against the Roosters.
Sam Mataora returns to the Raiders bench for the match, after making way for Tilse last weekend.
Fullback Josh Dugan has been named for the Raiders but is battling a rib injury and he will be given until later in the week to prove his fitness.
In some good news for the Raiders three players were cleared of broken hands yesterday following scans, with Blake Ferguson, Sandor Earl and Josh Papalii all fit to take their place this weekend.
Reece Robinson will play his 50th NRL match on Sunday.
