Raiders Team Announcement: Young Raider named to make debut

Canberra Raiders rising star Jeremy Hawkins has been named to make his NRL debut this weekend, when the Raiders take on the Gold Coast Titans on Sunday at Cbus Super Stadium on the Gold Coast.

Hawkins has been in tremendous form for the Raiders feeder club Mounties this season, including scoring four tries in their win against the Bulldogs last weekend.

Hawkins has been named on the wing for the Raiders, with Brenko Lee shifting to the centres to cover for Jack Wighton who is out with a broken thumb.

Sami Sauiluma returns to the Raiders line-up this weekend after recovering from an eye injury, replacing Matt Allwood on the wing.

Kurt Baptiste retains his place on the bench for the Raiders after making his Raiders debut against the Tigers, with Joel Edwards added to a five man bench for the trip north.
