Farewell game

Friday, November 10, 2017

Italy have named Raiders legend Terry Campese to return from a calf injury for what will be his farewell appearance at Canberra Stadium against Fiji for tomorrow's must-win Rugby League World Cup match.

Campese, who qualifies for the Azzurri through his Italian grandfather Antonio, hasn't played at Canberra Stadium since his final Raiders game three years ago but he didn't get a send-off from fans as his future with the club was not resolved.

After helping Italy to qualify for the world cup, the former Raiders captain has been targeting tomorrow's match in Canberra.

Campese, who captain-coached Queanbeyan Blues this season, returned from a stint in Super League with Hull KR.

He has been a late withdrawal from Italy's first two World Cup matches against Ireland and USA, but is expected to play tomorrow and was named by coach Cameron Ciraldo at five-eighth, enabling James Tedesco to revert to fullback for the must-win clash against unbeaten Fiji.

Dual international Mirco Bergamasco, who played 89 rugby union Tests for Italy before switching codes, has been included in the 21-man squad named on Tuesday.
