Mogg returns to Raiders

Catalans centre Adam Mogg has returned to the NRL and his former club Canberra Raiders.

Mogg, who left the club in 2006, will re-join the Raiders for the remainder of 2010 and will resume training duties this week.

The 32-year-old was released from his Dragons contract last week after it emerged that he was suffering from homesickness.

But he says that he’s more than ready to step back into the hustle and bustle of the NRL.

“I’m excited about being back in Australia and back in Canberra where I finished off and I’m keen to get back into it,” Mogg said.

“I’ll train with the team and see what the Coach thinks, it’s just good to be back home and I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
“I got the call from Dave Furner two weeks ago and to be back here is a bit surreal but it’s something my family and I are happy about,” he said. “I’ll finish this year off and see if I’m enjoying it and playing good footy and we’ll see.”
Raiders CEO Don Furner said the club was happy to have Mogg back in their squad and said his experience would be valuable for the team.
“We were lucky that things aligned for us and we were able to get Adam back here playing for us again,” Furner said. “We’ve got a few injuries to experienced players at the moment so it’s good to have someone like Adam back here to work with our young talented backline.”
