Canberra Raiders star hooker Josh Hodgson has his sights set on a round one return if his reconstructed knee continues to respond as well as it has been. The England international hoped he'd be joined at the Raiders by his nephew Bailey Hodgson, but salary cap restraints meant the Green Machine were unable to accommodate him. Instead, the 18-year-old has signed a three-year deal to join the Newcastle Knights. Hodgson has been back running for a number of weeks and can start to change direction next week. He's been happy with his progress and his sights were set on being ready for the start of the 2021 NRL season.
