NRL Team Announcement: Fensom and Edwards named for Raiders
Shaun Fensom and Joel Edwards have been named to take on the Panthers this weekend at Sportingbet Stadium, but will undergo fitness tests later in the week to determine if they are able to take the field in Penrith.
Scans to Fensom’s elbow revealed no serious damage, after he hyperextended it in an awkward tackle against Souths, while Edwards will be assessed after he left the field last Sunday with concussion.
The Raiders have named an unchanged line-up to the team which defeated South Sydney, with David Shillington named to start this weekend, after he was a late swap with Shannon Boyd to start against Souths.
Jake Foster has been named 18th man.
The Raiders will wear their special Legacy Jersey for the match against Penrith, to help celebrate in the NRL’s heritage round.
The unique Jersey features the name of every Canberra Raider player to have played first grade up until the end of the 2013 season, as well as featuring the years of the three Raiders Premierships (1989, 1990 and 1994).
