Gafa named at five-eighth
Jason Croker returns to the field after spending a fortnight on the sideline with a groin strain, but Michael Hodgson, with injured ribs, will remain out of action for another week.
Matthew Gafa has been named at five-eighth for the clash and will partner Mark McLinden in the halves, while Phil Graham has been rewarded for his oustanding comeback to first grade last week and will start on the wing.
Todd Carney has again been named in the squad; the Raiders six-man interchange bench to be culled to four before the match.
