NYC Team List: Raiders v Panthers

The Raiders have named their NYC team for their round 10 clash with the St George Illawarra Dragons at UOW Jubilee Oval Kogarah on Thursday night.  

With the disappointing loss to the Panthers in round nine Coach Brett White has made some changes to the side this weekend, including another two NYC debutants in Sebastian Kris and Ron Leapai.

Sebastian Kris is a talented outside back that had a strong season for the Raiders SG Ball team, while Leapai returns to the Raiders system following a year off in 2015 through injury. His form for the Woden Valley Rams in the Austbrokers Canberra Raiders Cup has been rewarded with an opportunity with the Raiders NYC team.

Harry Van Dartel will play fullback this weekend, with Robert Vai moving to the centres, and Chevi Ellis to the second row.

Bailey Hartwig will start the match at hooker for the injured Zac Woolford, while Jarred Tuite will start at lock.
