Canberra fullback Josh Dugan has been named to make his comeback from injury in Sunday's NRL match against Melbourne.

The NSW fullback has been out of action for six weeks since injuring his ankle in the Raiders' round-13 loss to North Queensland, ruling him out of the second and third State of Origin matches.

New Zealand international forward Bronson Harrison returns to the starting side after Josh Papalii suffered a groin injury in Saturday night's loss to Cronulla.

And Daniel Vidot wins a recall after winger Reece Robinson hurt his knee against the Sharks.

Second rower Joe Picker drops to the bench while Danny Galea comes into the starting side.

The club also announced on Tuesday tackling machine Shaun Fensom has extended his contract.

The Raiders' lock was already signed up to play the 2013 season but has agreed to a 12-month extension, keeping him at the club until at least the end of 2014.
