Raiders ready to take on the

Fone Zone Canberra Raiders speedster Phil Graham has been called back into the first grade lineup by coach Matthew Elliott, ahead of this Saturday's home clash with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

After a stint on the sidelines with an ankle injury, Graham returned to the field last week in the Raiders 48-6 Premier League thumping of the Rabbitohs, scoring a try in an impressive comeback performance.

Adam Mogg also returns to the lineup this week after a brief layoff with a shoulder injury, along with Michael Hodgson, who has been named on a 6-man interchange bench.

Ruben Wiki and Tyran Smith both return from suspension, while Marshall Chalk has retained his wing spot after an impressive debut against the Roosters a fortnight ago.

The match promises to be a blockbuster, with the Bunnies roaring back into form last week against the Broncos and the Raiders possibly playing for a finals berth, depending on the outcome of the Knights v Tigers clash which will be played earlier in the evening.
