Raiders stars Jarrod Croker and Josh Papalii will miss Thursday's clash with the high-flying South Sydney Rabbitohs after coach Ricky Stuart was forced to make more changes to his under-performing team. Croker is out for the short term with a minor shoulder injury, sustained late on in Saturday's 26-24 loss to North Queensland. It's the same shoulder the 30-year-old had operated on during the offseason, but his latest setback is not believed to be related to the surgery, Queensland prop Josh Papalii has been rested for the Souths game after coming off the bench against the Cowboys. New Zealand international Joseph Tapine takes Papalii's spot on the bench, while veteran Sia Soliola, who was 18th man in Townsville last weekend, has been left out of the 17 for a second straight week. Bailey Simonsson returns from concussion and will resume his place on the wing, while Sebastian Kris will switch sides and push into the centres to cover Croker.
