Blake Austin's second season at the Raiders didn't quite go according to plan, with injuries disrupting his momentum just when things seemed to be going smoothly.

A broken hand almost derailed Austin's maiden finals series, but he returned to play a huge role in the Raiders semi-final victory over the Panthers.

After missing the majority of last pre-season with a shoulder injury, Austin will benefit hugely in 2017 from a full pre-season. More time alongside his halves partner, Aidan Sezer, will also be a bonus, with the pair both capable of pushing for State of Origin honours.

While it seems almost impossible the Raiders record-breaking attack could improve in 2017, a fully-fit and confident Austin adds another attacking weapon capable of producing plenty of points.
