Raiders five eighth Mark McLinden will start tomorrow?s match against Parramatta and Jason Croker will move into the forwards, presumably at lock which means either Terry Martin or Michael Hodgson will move to the interchange bench to accommodate the inclusion of McLinden.
There has been no word yet on which forward will be dropped on from the interchange bench but the late mail is Sean Rutgerson will be the man to miss out. Canberra are virtually at full strength for this match with only Ruben Wiki and the Monaghan brothers unavailable as the Raiders attempt to keep their unbeaten run in tact heading into their week six bye.
