PANTHERS NRL v RAIDERS: GIO Stadium, Canberra. Sunday 18th May. Kickoff: 2.00pm
There are a few changes to Ivan Cleary’s team this week thanks to a couple of injuries we’ve picked up in recent weeks.
James Segeyaro will start as hooker with Kevin Kingston ruled out for another week with a foot problem, Nigel Plum will sit this one out too after being concussed in the game against Newcastle, and Elijah Taylor still has a few weeks left until he’s fit.
The good news is Tim Grant is back after recovering from a calf strain, with Jeremy Latimore, Matt Robinson and Isaah Yeo rounding out the bench.

Coach Garth Brennan has called on Daniel Foster to step up and fill his shoes alongside Luke Capewell. Captain Nathan Smith will also move into the centres to cover Isaah Yeo who’s been named in the first grade side, and Bryce Cartwright will start at lock.
INTERCHANGE: 14. Liam AYOUB, 15. Tom EISENHUTH, 16. Leilani LATU, 17. Vaipuna TIA KILIFI
