Thompson has been out since round seven with a neck injury and his return is a timely boost for the Raiders who went down to the Roosters 20-16 in a thriller last Friday night.
The starting side remains the same as last week while Matt Elliott has named a five man bench that includes Alan Tongue, who is returning from a two match suspension.
