Jeremy Hawkins will return to the Raiders NRL team on the wing this weekend for their round six match against the Melbourne Storm at GIO Stadium, after Jordan Rapana was suspended for one week.

Rapana has taken the early guilty plea for a grade one high tackle on Manly’s Jamie Buhrer, with carryover points from a previous charge seeing him miss the match.

Hawkins inclusion on the wing is the only change to the Raiders team who defeated the Sea Eagles, with Sisa Waqa remaining in the centres after making a successful return from injury last weekend.
