The Raiders would like to congratulate NYC stars Lachlan Croker and Tevita Pangai Junior on being selected to represent the NSW Under 18's V QLD Under 18’s at ANZ Stadium on Wednesday, June 18th prior to Game Two of the Holden State of Origin series.

Croker is an exciting five-eighth prospect who Captained the Canberra's SG Ball side to the semi-finals at the start of the year before progressing through to the club's NYC side where he has been ultra-impressive over the last three matches. 

Pangai Junior broke into the Raiders NYC side last year and after his brilliant displays and undoubted potential were rewarded by training with the club's NRL squad over the pre-season.

The damaging back-rower has currently been gaining experience in the NSW Cup for Mounties and shapes as being a key player for the Blues.
