Former Queensland State of Origin centre Adam Mogg has returned to the NRL with Canberra after more than three years with French Super League side Les Catalans.

Mogg, who scored two tries on his Origin debut when he replaced an injured Greg Inglis in 2006, has agreed to a deal with the Raiders until the end of this season after leaving the club at the end of 2006.

The 32-year-old will be a welcome addition to David Furner's side, who have centres Joel Monaghan (thumb) and Justin Carney (leg) on the sidelines.

"I'm here to play footy," Mogg said.

"I've missed the last two weeks with the transition of finishing off in France and coming here, but I'm ready to go.

"It's going to be a challenge and a step up in class but that's what sport's all about."

Mogg said he had added to his game playing in the Super League.

"I'll sit down with the coaches and see what they think is best for me," he said.

"I've developed my game a bit overseas. I've definitely changed and improved my game and I've played a lot of footy in the halves, but I'm coming back here and stepping up a class so we'll wait and see."

Mogg secured a release from his contract at the Perpignan-based Dragons.

"I got the call from Dave Furner two weeks ago and to be back here is a bit surreal but it's something my family and I are happy about," he said.

"I'll finish this year off and see if I'm enjoying it and playing good footy and well see (about next year)."
