Canberra Raiders hooker Josh Hodgson eyes England comeback after ACL injury

Josh Hodgson says he's is edging closer to making his comeback from a ruptured anterior cruciate knee ligament injury, sustained playing for England in the World Cup semi-final against Tonga.

Take your time Josh. No need to rush back and maybe have longer term problems.

I have to say though I am a bit more concerned about the upcoming Tonga v Samoa Test match. I expect there will be a couple of Raiders players in for Tonga and a possible 3 for Samoa. (Depending on Papa's possible Origin commitment). It should be an entertaining match but there will some concern for Sticky every time they come into contact with each other. Particularly Havili in the middle tackling Junior and possibly Papa.

Sticky would be more concerned about them smashing the all you can eat buffets rather than smashing each other.

After what happened at the world cup we shouldn't release the Samoan players.
