Raiders NYC Captain Lachlan Croker will make his NRL debut on Saturday afternoon at GIO Stadium, after he was named at five-eighth for the Raiders clash against the Sydney Roosters.

Croker will replace the injured Blake Austin, who will miss 4-6 weeks with a knee injury. Croker will be partnered in the halves by Sam Williams who comes back into the team after missing round one with a virus. Williams replaces Aidan Sezer who will also miss 4-6 weeks with injury (Eye-Socket).

The changes in the halves are the only alterations for the Raiders team this weekend, with the rest of the team unchanged from the side which defeated the Panthers in round one.
