Dragons captain Trent Barrett will make his 2005 season debut this weekend when he returns from injury for the Dragons clash with the Raiders at Canberra Stadium.
Barrett, 27, is both excited and nervous about playing his first NRL game since August last year on Saturday night.
�I don�t feel under pressure although we obviously need to win pretty badly,� Barrett said. �I just want to enjoy the week of training and I�m really looking forward to getting back on the field.
�We improved a lot last week against Penrith and if all 17 of us can show the same sort of improvement, we will be in a good position to overcome the Raiders who are always tough to beat at home.�
