Lupton is one of three changes to this week’s team with Josh Maynard also named in Canberra’s final 23.

Speaking exclusively to on Thursday night, teammate Sam Martyn said Lupton was an exciting player who would bring a lot of energy to the side this weekend.

“Liam’s worked his backside off all year and I'm looking forward to playing alongside him on Saturday,” Martyn said.

“He’s tenacious and aggressive, that's how I'd describe him, he'll provide a great contest and will fit into our system perfectly."
