Luke Bateman surprised many by cementing a position in the Raiders top 17 in 2016.

After six first grade appearances in 2015, Bateman continued his development in 2016, playing in 20 matches and becoming a key cog in the Raiders success.

Smaller in size than many of his fellow forwards, Bateman more than makes up for it with his fearless hit-ups and energy in defence.

Often coming off the bench in 2016, Bateman will challenge for a starting spot in 2017, with his mobility and speed a key attribute in a monster Raiders pack.

Bateman will again head to the Auckland Nines in 2017, making him the Raiders most capped player at the tournament, having played in every edition so far. 

At just 21 years of age, and having re-signed until the end of 2018, Bateman is shaping to be a key member of the Raiders forward pack for many years to come.
