Manly lose Kieran Foran to a leg injury but the return of Daly Cherry-Evans softens the blow. Jamie Lyon will once again line up at five-eighth with Peta Hiku in the centres and David Williams taking his place on the wing. Jason King missed last week and is no certainty to take the field, Jesse Sene-Lafao has once again been named 18th man, it has been speculated that Anthony Watmough could be in doubt.

Canberra have named an unchanged line up from their win over the Storm last week.

The Raiders travel to Brookvale not having won at the venue since 2010, and as a coach Ricky Stuart has failed to register a win against Manly in seven attempts since 2008.
