There has been a late change and a late addition to the Raiders line-up in the NYC match this afternoon at GIO Stadium Canberra.

Talented utility Ricky Garard is elevated to the starting side at hooker with Dylan McGrath dropping out of the side, whilst inspirational forward Mitchell Barnett returns to the team via the interchange bench at the expense of Jamal Nchouki.

Barnett had previously been gaining experience in the VB NSW Cup with Mounties and will be a valuable addition to the team.
