Kato Ottio is set to make his debut in Raiders colours at this weekend's Auckland Nines tournament after being selected in the 18 man team.
Possessing a lethal combination of size and speed, Kato will be a dangerous asset for the Raiders at the Nines. His versitility in the outside backs will also suit him perfectly to the Nines format.
Kato is currently on a trial and train pre-season contract with the Canberra Raiders. A decision on a playing contract with the Canberra Raiders will be made late February/early March.
The entire Auckland Nines event will be broadcast on Fox Sports in Australia. Stay tuned to the Canberra Raiders Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages for live updates, photos and videos from the tournament.
