Hodgson In, Thompson Out

Michael Hodgson has been called up as a late inclusion for the Raiders game against the Dragons this afternoon after Troy Thompson was ruled out with a shoulder injury.

Hodgson played off the bench against the Tigers last week and performed well so his inclusion will bolster the Raiders pack who have taken the physical approach this year with immediate results.

Still no confirmation on McLinden being added to the squad but the Raiders do need someone to cover the backline so the announcement should come later in the day.
