Raiders side for Roosters clash

The Canberra Raiders have named their side for the blockbuster clash against the Roosters at Canberra Stadium on Sunday.

With Jason Croker out with a broken leg, Michael Monaghan will start the game at five eighth while Michael Hodgson has been named on a six man bench that has plenty of size about it.

Michael Robertson is also out with a hamstring injury with Adam Mogg returning to the starting line up at centre, pushing try scoring whiz Joel Monaghan onto the wing.

Canberra are still very much in the running for the minor premiership and a victory over the Roosters would assure the Raiders of a top two finish at the very worst.
