In the wake of the Raiders 49-12 thrashing by Wests Tigers on Sunday, their seventh consecutive loss, Furner said his priority was with his NRL club. Tipped by many to be semi-finalists earlier in the year, the Raiders have recorded just one win from eight matches and sit last on the ladder. Mullen free to play for Country NSW Country Origin halfback Jarrod Mullen will be free to play in Friday nights clash with City Origin if he enters an early guilty plea to a dangerous throw charge. Newcastle Knights Mullen received a gradeone charge for a tackle on Melbourne Storms Kevin Proctor in Saturday nights 42-12 NRL thrashing by Melbourne. He will escape a ban with an early plea or miss one match if he unsuccessfully defends the charge at the judiciary. Houston comeback continues CHRIS Houston is on the cusp of playing State of Origin for NSW completing a remarkable turnaround after nearly 12 months out of the NRL while fighting charges of supplying drugs. The second-rower, 26, voluntarily terminated his contract with the Newcastle Knights in March 2010 but was reinstated late last year after charges were dismissed. His journey back continues in Friday nights Country Origin-City Origin clash in Albury.

Big Test for Kade Cronulla prop Kade Snowden has replaced Canberras David Shillington in the Australian team GETTING a last-minute Australian Rugby League team call-up was a rush for Test rookie Kade Snowden. But the Cronulla prop reckoned an unexpected chance to learn from master front rower Petero Civoniceva in one of his final Tests would be hard to beat. In a whirlwind day, Snowden had breakfast in Sydney with the NSW Country side before sitting down for dinner with idol Civoniceva at Australias Gold Coast camp. Instead of running out against City in Albury, Snowden will make his Test debut on Friday night against New Zealand at Skilled Park after the injury withdrawal of Canberra prop David Shillington (pectoral). It marked the biggest day of his career since his 2005 first-grade debut and sole NSW Origin run in 2010 yet Snowdens thoughts quickly turned to another. Petero is one of the best forwards ever, Snowden said of the Penrith captain. I will try to learn as much as I can off him because I dont know how many times I will play with him. I will just watch and learn. Snowden, 24, would have been forgiven for thinking his chance to learn from the master was lost after Civonicevas noble gesture last year. The veteran of 44 Tests a record for a forward looked to have played his final game for Australia when he sensationally withdrew from the 2010 Four Nations final. Unhappy with his form and selected on the bench, Civoniceva asked coach Tim Sheens to drop him and give a young forward a chance. Kiwis ready to walk the walk THEY may have raided Australias trophy cabinet but New Zealand would be kidding themselves if they thought they were better than the Kangaroos, captain Benji Marshall says. The Kiwis could lay claim to being favourites for Friday nights Test on the Gold Coast after making a habit of stealing the limelight from Australia on rugby leagues biggest stage. They are World Cup champions and will defend their Four Nations crown later this year, having beaten the Kangaroos in those finals in 2008 and 2010 respectively. But Marshall hinted New Zealand could only start claiming bragging rights once they regularly claimed victory over Australia, including the mid-year Test. (Australia) have been the benchmark for international footy for the last 10 years, Marshall said yesterday. If we thought we were better than them we would be kidding ourselves. We havent won an Anzac Test for 13 years and in Australia we havent won one at all. So it is going to be a big challenge.
