Luke Bateman believes that his Raiders teammates are shaping up nicely in pre-season before heading into the Christmas break.

The Raiders forward is hoping to nail down a spot in Ricky Stuart's starting side in 2018 and is working hard to ensure this.

"You have to be fit to play a lot of minutes and with that comes big numbers and good footy, if I can play my best footy then ill be in the side," Bateman said.
