Raiders name five man forward

The Canberra Raiders have named a five man powerhouse bench as they prepare for their first free to air game against the in-form Sharks this Friday night.

Terry Martin returns from injury while Adam Mogg, also expected back this week, has not been named in the 18 man squad.

18 year old Michael Weyman, who has been outstanding in his first two matches for the Raiders is on the five man bench.

Raiders coach Matthew Elliott will decide later in the week who misses out.

Mark McLinden has been named to start at five eighth although Elliott could make a late switch and try and combat the Sharks with their biggest side in many years.
