Frank-Paul Nuuausala has issued a warning to his team mates that they need to keep a close eye on the Knights' talented outside backs, particularly at the start and finish of sets.

The majority of the tries conceded by the Raiders in recent weeks has been leaked on the edges, and Canberra’s outside backs will need to be on high alert against a Newcastle backline brimming with the talents of Dane Gagai, Akuila Uate, Sione Mata’utia, Joseph Leilua and James McManus.

The aforementioned quintet are also extremely effective at getting Newcastle's set of sixes off to a good start, something which must be closely monitored by the Raiders' forward pack.
