Intrust Super Cup Team Announcement: Round 1

Souths Logan Magpies Coach Josh Hannay has named a strong side, featuring four Raiders players, for the Round 1 clash with the Sunshine Coast on Saturday at Stockland.

Whilst there has long been an affiliation with the Souths Logan area, the Canberra Raiders will formerly re-commence their partnership with the Souths Logan Magpies in 2014 in the Intrust Super Cup.

For the first time in three years, the Raiders have been granted permission to send their players who have migrated from Queensland to play with the Souths Logan Magpies in 2014.

Although he is a local Canberra junior, Jack Ahearn will take the field in the five-eighth position and look to combine with winger Jordan Rapana frequently, whilst the combination of Mitch Cronin at hooker and Sam Mataora at prop looks promising for the Magpies forward pack.  

The match against the Sunshine Coast kicks off on Saturday at 6:00pm at Stockland.
