Round 15 Raiders v Tigers: The Contenders

During Friday's heartbreaking loss to the Penrith Panthers, the green machine lost Joey Leilua to a concussion, Jordan Rapana to a hamstring injury and Charlie Gubb whill miss one week due to suspension.

We look at some of the players that could potentially come in to take to the field against the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium on Sunday.

Joseph Tapine

The New Zealand international comes straight back into the side after serving his two-game suspension. Tapine's inclusion could see some shifting around in the forward pack to compensate for the suspension of Charlie Gubb.

Michael Oldfield

Oldfield's name has already been thrown around numerous times and is a fantastic player to have at your disposal to slot in on the wing. Previously, Oldfield has two appearances for the green machine, his first was in 2017 when he scored a try on debut against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium.

The Tongan international was taken from the field in the Raiders' Round 5 clash against the Bulldogs.

Mikaele Ravalawa

The flying Fijian has been a revelation for Mounties in 2018 and is in prolific try scoring form. Ravalawa is a graduate of the Raiders 2017 Holden Cup side and even spent time with the Fiji International side during the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.

Mikaele currently sits on the Intrust Super Premiership try scorers list with 11 tries and will no doubt be in the mind of Raiders coach Ricky Stuart.

Brad Abbey

The fullback is knocking on the door to make his NRL debut for the Raiders and has been in scintillating form for Mounties in 2018.

Abbey has nine tries in the Intrust Super Premiership and will be looking to build on his four NRL appearances which came for the Bulldogs in 2017.

Abbey can play on the wing and can slot in and do a job for Ricky Stuart if called upon.

Emre Guler

A player with enormous potential. Like Ravalawa, Guler is a product of the Raiders 2017 Holden Cup side and has made the transition to Intrust Super Premiership in 2018 seamlessly.

Gubb's suspension leaves the Raiders a little bit light in the forward stocks with Junior Paulo missing due to a foot injury.

Stuart may turn to Emre to add a bit of size and the 110kg 20 year-old may fit the bill for the clash against the Tigers this weekend.
