NRL journeyman Richie Fa'aoso returned to rugby league last week for the first time since suffering what appeared to be a career-ending neck injury. 

Forced into a premature retirement following strong medical advice and recommendations, Fa’aoso last weekend made his first appearance since fracturing his neck at the back end of 2013.

The Parramatta front-rower impressed in his first outing for Wentworthville and now has his sights set on a return to the top grade.

After a somewhat subdued first half, Fa'oso made several powerful runs and a number of very physical defensive hits in the latter stages of the contest in what was a promising return.

Fa'oso has played almost 200 top-level rugby league matches for a handful of NRL clubs and also in England.
