Nielsen back for tough trip to Raiders country

5:26 pm on 10 April 2013

Warriors centre Dane Nielsen is set to make his National Rugby League return from injury against the Raiders in Canberra on Saturday night.

Nielsen wasn't originally named in the squad for the trip to the Australian capital but coach Matt Elliott says the Queensland Origin representative will start.

But prop Jacob Lillyman and versatile back-rower cum utility Elijah Taylor are still on the injured list and are unlikely to make the bench.
