Club captain Jarrod Croker also shares his thoughts on Whitehead's arrival and how the team is shaping up for 2016.
Hailing from England, Whitehead has recently burst onto the international scene with his two try performance for England in their International Series victory over New Zealand. Still young at 26 years of age, Whitehead is hoping his first season in Raiders colours is similar to fellow England star Josh Hodgson’s breakthrough season in 2015.
