Canberra Raiders NYC coach Brett White has named his side for Saturday's Round 1 match against the North Queensland Cowboys. 

Kalani Going has been handed the reins as captain in his third season of playing NYC for the Raiders. Going missed most of 2016 through injury, but he has been impressive during pre-season and in trial matches.

The squad includes a mix of regulars and new faces, with White opting for an extended bench.
