Canberra Raiders vs Newcastle Knights trial NRL match at Seiffert Oval

The NRL has made changes to the way team lists are named in 2017. The changes can be summarised as follows:

Tuesday 4pm: Announce 17 active players and four reserves (21-man squad). 

24 hours before kick-off: Cut squad to 17 active players and two reserves (19-man squad).

1 hour before kick-off: Final 17-man squad announced. 

Notes regarding the new team selection rules:

- If you wish to bring in a player from outside the 21-man or 19-man squad you will need to apply for an exemption which will be evaluated by the Head of Football on a case-by-case basis.
- Players named as “Reserves” on Tuesday will still be able to be named in the starting sides of NYC and Mounties.
- Any players included in the 19 man squad will be deemed ineligible for selection in the final 17 man squad if they play in a NSW/QLD Cup match prior to the NRL match.
