Storm: Nelson Asofa-Solomona (hamstring) was ruled after Wednesday's captain's run, failing to come up from the injury which has sidelined him since round 19. Tom Eisenhuth joins the bench.

Ryan Papenhuyzen is expected to be fine despite copping a knock to the knee last week in his third game back from a concussion lay-off.

Papenhuyzen's minutes at fullback improved last week with Bellamy likely to increase them again on Thursday. 

Jordan Grant was the other player to come out of the squad on Wednesday along with Asofa-Solomona.

Isaac Lumelume was the last man cut an hour before kick-off and Tepai Moeroa is 18th man.

Melbourne have won eight from eight at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

Raiders: Iosia Solioa has been promoted to the starting side an hour before kick-off with Ryan Sutton going to the bench.

Bailey Simonsson (toe) returns after five games on the sideline and has been named on the wing but coach Ricky Stuart said on Wednesday he will start at fullback.

Jordan Rapana will return to the edge with Semi Valemei (throat) out for a fortnight.

Matt Frawley and Siliva Havili were the first two players cut from the squad 24 hours before kick-off. Dunamis Lui was the last man cut on game night and Seb Kris is 18th man.

A Canberra win will give Ricky Stuart his 100th victory as Raiders coach.
