Roosters: A couple of late changes with Mitchell Aubusson to start in the second row with Angus Crichton shuffling to the interchange bench. Lindsay Collins is a late withdrawal due to a minor groin complaint, which will again see Nat Butcher come into the 17 on the interchange bench.

Lachlan Lam is the other match-day omission.

A double boost for the premiers with hooker Jake Friend (head knock) and interchange forward Sonny Bill Williams (neck) named to return. Freddy Lussick, who wore the No.9 last week, has been left out of the squad altogether.

Daniel Suluka-Fifita and Matt Ikuvalu were omitted from the reserves 24 hours from kick-off. The Roosters have won four of their past five games against the Raiders.

Raiders: Canberra have made two match-day changes to their starting pack. Siliva Havili comes in at hooker and Hudson Young at prop with Tom Starling and Sia Soliola sliding back to the bench.

Sam Williams and Matthew Timoko are the final cuts from the match-day line-up.

Coach Ricky Stuart named the same 17 players for this do-or-die clash after the side came through unscathed against the Sharks. Lock Joseph Tapine will play his 100th game for the club.
