Comeback from injury is complete for former rep star.
Canberra Raiders coach David Furner said he did not want to rush Terry Campese back from his second serious knee injury.
And after two games back in 2013, Furner has promoted Campese to the number six jersey for his side’s clash with the Melbourne Storm at AAMi Park.
Campese comes into the side at the expense of Sam Williams who has been dropped and Anthony Milford becomes the new backline bench utility.
Jarrod Croker (knee, round 11) is replaced at centre by Jack Wighton, with Sandor Earl coming onto the wing.
Joel Thompson (toe, round nine) is also out, with Joe Picker, Jarrad Kennedy and Shaun Berrigan added to an extended squad
For the Storm the only change is the addition of Kenneath Bromwich as 18th man with Ryan Hinchcliffe (knee, round 13) out.
