Late Mail - Qualifying Final v Raiders

Update: Tino Fa'asuamaleaui and Curtis Scott drop out of our squad to face the Raiders tonight.

They will play for the Sunshine Coast Falcons in tomorrow's clash with Easts Tigers in week two of the Intrust Super Cup finals.

Original story follows:

All three players who missed last week's game against the Cowboys have been named to return in our Qualifying Final against the Raiders at AAMI Park on Saturday night.

Josh Addo-Carr returns on the wing, Cameron Munster at five-eighth and Brandon Smith in the number 14 jersey.

Dropping out of the starting side are Sandor Earl, who will play for the Sunshine Coast Falcons in the Intrust Super Cup final against Easts Tigers and Brodie Croft, who has been named on the extended interchange bench.

Harry Grant, who played for Storm last weekend, will concentrate on Q Cup commitments this weekend.

Cameron Smith requires one goal in Saturday's game to become the first hooker (and only the third forward) to kick 100 goals in a season.

The only forwards to reach a century in a season have been Harry Bath (St George, 108 goals in 1958) and George Grant (St George, 104 in 1979).
