Raiders\' Costigan returns for Panthers battle

Powerful forward Neville Costigan has been named in the Raiders starting line-up for this weekend's big clash with the Penrith Panthers at CUA Stadium, with the back rower returning from a one week suspension.

Costigan missed the Raiders 26-0 defeat against the Sharks, and retakes his place in the number eleven jersey, with Ben Jones returning to the interchange.

After making a successful return from injury last weekend Troy Thompson also moves back into the Raiders starting side, with Dane Tilse moving back to the bench.

Josh Miller has been named as an 18th man for the big game against the Panthers, and will come in to the side if Glen Turner fails a fitness test on his hamstring later in the week.
