Semi Radradra has the chance to make a late season push for inclusion in Australia's Four Nations squad after he was named to make his Parramatta return from five weeks out with a knee injury.

Radradra was on Tuesday included in coach Brad Arthur's Eels outfit for Sunday's round 24 NRL match with Canberra.

The Fijian winger hasn't played since injuring his knee in the round 18 win over Sydney Roosters.

Radradra, who is facing domestic violence allegations, was a controversial choice for Australia's mid-season Test against New Zealand in Newcastle in May after pledging allegiance to the green and gold over his native Fiji.

He now has three rounds to impress Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga given the Eels are out of finals contention.

Parramatta also welcome back Beau Scott from a leg injury for the trip to the nation's capital.

Third-placed Canberra are without hooker Josh Hodgson due to suspension. Kurt Baptiste will wear the No.9 jersey.

Adam Clydsdale and Jarrad Kennedy come into coach Ricky Stuart's 18-man squad.

Greg Eastwood returns from a hamstring injury into Canterbury's back-row for Thursday's round 24 opener against Brisbane at Suncorp Stadium.

Coach Des Hasler has named a 21-man squad that also welcomes back Kerrod Holland.

Jordan Kahu (pec) moves on to the wing for the Broncos in place of Jonus Pearson.

Jordan Rankin replaces James Tedesco (broken jaw) at fullback for Wests Tigers' clash with Penrith at Pepper Stadium on Friday.

Josh Addo-Carr moves onto the wing for Wests, who welcome back halfback Luke Brooks from a knee injury.

Jeremy Smith, Josh King and Nathan Ross all return for Newcastle's Saturday afternoon fixture against Gold Coast at Hunter Stadium.

Nate Myles (knee), Blake Leary and Matt Parcell are back for Trent Barrett's Manly in a 19-man squad for Saturday evening's encounter with Melbourne at Brookvale Oval.

Tuimoala Lolohea has been dumped from fullback for the Warriors crucial trip to Townsville on Saturday night.

David Fusitua fills the visitors' No.1 jersey against North Queensland.

Winger Antonio Winterstein (leg) replaces Javid Bowen for the home side. Forward Coen Hess takes John Asiata's spot on the bench.

Tariq Sims (ankle) is out of St George Illawarra's Allianz Stadium clash with Sydney Roosters on Sunday.

Leeson Ah Mau and Jacob Host join an extended Dragons bench.

Aidan Guerra has again been named 18th man for the Roosters.

Captain Paul Gallen is back from a calf strain for Cronulla's match against South Sydney at ANZ Stadium on Monday that concludes round 24.

Zane Musgrove (suspension) is out of Souths side. Cameron McInnes and Nathan Brown join an 18-man Rabbitohs outfit.
