McCrone to debut for Raiders

The CFMEU Canberra Raiders will welcome their fifth debutant of the 2009 NRL season this weekend, with Josh McCrone set to make his debut at halfback for the Green Machine against the Bulldogs on Sunday.

McCrone gets his chance following an injury to Raiders halfback Marc Herbert last weekend, with scans revealing yesterday that Herbert will miss a minimum of four weeks with ankle Syndesmosis.

Raiders Coach David Furner has added Dane Tilse and Nigel Plum to the bench for Sunday
