Charlie Gubb is set to make his Raiders NRL debut this weekend, after he was named on the bench for the Raiders round two match against the Newcastle Knights at GIO Stadium on Sunday evening.

Gubb comes into the 17, with Joe Tapine ruled out with a thumb injury he sustained against the Titans. Tapine will be assessed weekly as he looks to make a return from a dislocation of the left thumb.

The injury to Tapine has forced a reshuffle of the Raiders starting side, with Elliott Whitehead shifting to the second row and Luke Bateman named at lock.

Blake Austin has been named at five-eighth, Sam Williams at halfback and Aidan Sezer on the bench, with Coach Ricky Stuart settling on the same halves combination he used in round one.

Sia Soliola will start the match in the front row again this Sunday, with Junior Paulo coming from the bench.

Craig Garvey, Michael Oldfield, Royce Hunt and Jack Murchie have been named as reserves on the extended bench.
