NRL Late Mail: Raiders v Knights

Here's how the Raiders will take the field for this afternoon's match against the Newcastle Knights at GIO Stadium. 

Shaun Fensom replaces Sia Soliola in the team who is rested as a precaution after picking up a minor rib injury in last weekend's win over the Titans. Fensom will start with Luke Bateman moving to the bench.

Paul Vaughan and Junior Paulo also swap, with Vaughan to start the game in the front row alongside Shannon Boyd while Paulo will come off the bench. 

The match kicks off at 2.00pm and is live on Fox Sports Channel 501. Live updates will also be posted on the Raiders Twitter
