Milne returns in the clash against Roosters

Fiji Bati centre Taane Milne returns to the South Sydney Rabbitohs squad against the Sydney Roosters in Round 24 of the NRL tomorrow.

Milne sustained a knee injury two weeks ago and will start from the bench this week.

Damien Cook has a quad concern and if he is anything less than 100 per cent, he says Wayne Bennett will look to rest him with Benji Marshall waiting in the wings to take on the hooking duties.

Cook though is confident he will be fit to take his place pending how he fares in Thursday's captain's run.

Junior Tatola passed a head injury assessment on Friday night but will need to go through further tests this week after complaining of blurred vision.

He has been named on the interchange bench with Thomas Burgess named to start.

Liam Knight is on the reserves list as he continues to work his way back from a concussion in round 18. 

The Rabbitohs vs Roosters match will kick off at 9.55 pm on Friday.
