Hodgson back for Tigers clash

Michael Hodgson is set to make a return to the playing field this Saturday, after spending a fornight on the sidelines with a rib injury he sustained in the Raiders round 14 home win over Cronulla.

The inclusion of the Raiders form forward of 2004 has further boosted an already strong forward pack, which got the better of the Broncos last Sunday, despite having Hodgson and Wiki on the sidelines.

Matthew Gafa has again been named in the halves, while speed-machine Phil Graham, who has displayed good form over the last fortnight against tough opposition, will be looking to further stamp his mark on the top grade.
