Valemei returns but benched against Warriors

Fijian and Canberra Raiders winger Semi Valemei returns from injury but has been benched in the match against the New Zealand Warriors in round 24 of NRL on Friday.

Valemei is listed among the reserves as he looks to return from a throat injury suffered in round 21.

The Raiders have made one change to their starting side with Matt Frawley named at halfback for Sam Williams, with Williams moving to the extended bench.

Siliva Havili comes back onto the interchange bench for the Raiders, while Corey Horsburgh will also come from the bench after two weeks gaining some valuable game time for the Bulldogs.

Jordan Rapana holds the fullback spot and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad is again on the bench while there is still no sign of skipper Jarrod Croker (knee).

Corey Horsburgh returns from his two-week stint on loan to the Bulldogs and he slots on to the bench with Dunamis Lui dropping out. 

Siliva Havili is the other new face on the interchange bench.

The Raiders will meet the Warriors at 8pm on Friday.
