Santo speeds into Nines team

Zac Santo joined the Raiders in early December and will be hoping for a big performance at this weekend's Auckland Nines.

Santo previously played for the North Queensland Cowboys, crafting a reputation as a try scoring guru in the NYC and Queensland Cup competitions. He played one first grade game for the Cowboys in 2014 and will be hoping to break into the Raiders starting side this year. Santo's preffered position of fullback or wing sees him facing plenty of competition to break into the Raiders top 17. 

Santo impressed at the 2014 Auckland Nines for North Queensland, with his speed and attacking instinct making his selection for the Raiders Nines team a sure thing. 

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.
