NRL: Fogarty set for Raiders debut

Jamal Fogarty will finally get to make his Canberra debut against the Parramatta Eels on Sunday after recovering from injury.

The Raiders are priced at 8/5 to finish in the top eight of the NRL this season and are on a roll at the moment after winning three games on the bounce.

Knee issues

Fogarty joined the club ahead of the new campaign but had to sit out the first eleven rounds as he continued his rehabilitation from a knee injury but he is now fit and raring to go.

And Raiders coach Ricky Stuart is wasting no time at all by putting Fogarty straight into the green machine side.

"I had a bit of a chat with Sticky (Stuart), I said 'the team's going really good and the combinations are going well, what do you want to do?'" Fogarty told reporters. "He said he'll put me straight in."

Ahead of schedule

The 28-year-old was only expected to return in round 15 of the competition, so playing three weeks ahead of schedule comes as a big boost to Canberra. And he will now partner Jack Wighton in the halves.

"The last couple of weeks I've done a bit of an intro, a bit of skills, I was trying to tell the trainers to beat it, they were like 'nah mate, gotta be nice and diligent with it'," Fogarty added. "Last week I was able to do a couple of full sessions, obviously this week preparing for Parra has been really good."
