Raiders name strong squad for Tamworth Trial
The Canberra Raiders have named a 28 man squad for their final trial match against the Newcastle Knights in Tamworth this Saturday night, with Anthony Milford, Josh Papalii, Shaun Fensom, Brett White and Paul Vaughan set for their first games of the 2014 season.
Raiders Coach Ricky Stuart said he expects to give all 28 players an equal opportunity to impress ahead of their round one match and said any of the players could find themselves in the first round team if they performed well Saturday.
“I’ve said all along that the players will pick themselves for round one and they get a chance to impress in this trial,” Stuart said. “We’ll give all of the guys a chance to get some quality minutes in Tamworth, while the players not going will get a chance to play for Mounties in Sydney on Sunday.
