Casualty Ward : Round 12

Thirteen may be an unlucky number for some, but Round 13 next week is proving lucky for a number of clubs with nine players due to return from injury, including star Rabbitohs recruit Greg Inglis and gun Raider Terry Campese.

The mid-season return could not be more crucial for some of the clubs, whose teams are starting to feel the pressure in the bottom half of the Telstra Premiershp ladder.

The 10th placed Rabbitohs will not only welcome back Inglis (groin injury), but also Matt Mundine and Ben Lowe (both from foot stress fractures).

It will also be timely for Inglis to push for a return to Origin football with teams for Game 2 to be named after Round 13.

For the bottom of the table Raiders, Campese's first game of the season (knee ACL) at home cannot come soon enough.

Among the other players expected to return next week are: Anthony Laffranchi (ankle sprain) to the 14th placed Titans; Tigers internationals Lote Tuqiri (fractured forearm) and Gareth Ellis (ankle sprain); Nick Emett (Dragons, foot) and Chris Hicks (Eels, ankle).
