The week off due to representative round has Raiders forward Luke Bateman hungry to get back to action on Sunday against the Newcastle Knights at McDonald Jones Stadium. 

Bateman spoke to the media at Raiders HQ yesterday, discussing the team's desire to fix issues from the loss to the Bulldogs, the golden point matches against the Knights in 2016, and how the loss of Josh Papalii will impact the team this week. 

Hear from Bateman in the video above as he also talks about new Fijian recruit, Masivesi Dakuwaqa, and the recent player behaviour issues in the NRL.
