Fensom back in for Raiders


Canberra Raiders forward Shaun Fensom returns to the Raiders team for this weekends must win match against the Bulldogs, after Josh Miller was given a weeks break due to a concussion suffered in Monday nights win against Penrith at Canberra Stadium.


Fensoms inclusion in the team on the bench sees Trevor Thurling move into lock for the Green Machine, with Joe Picker named as 18th man.


Picker will be assessed later in the week to determine if his back injury will allow him to rejoin the squad for the game, but he's expected to recover ahead of Saturday night.


Raiders winger Daniel Vidot will escape suspension for his grade one dangerous contact charge, as he took the early plea and the 90 carry over points to make sure he's available for the Bulldogs clash.


Raiders Coach David Furner said the Raiders will have a light week at training leading into the game, with the emphasis on recovering from Monday nights bruising win.
