In a series analysing who will line up in each position for all 16 teams in the opening round of the Telstra Premiership in 2020, looks at grand finalists the Canberra Raiders. says: The recruitment of Curtis Scott has resulted in Joey Leilua going to Wests Tigers while George Williams is a straight swap at halfback for Aidan Sezer.

John Bateman is expected to miss the first six or seven rounds as he recovers from shoulder surgery, so Joseph Tapine is set to move to the edge while Dunamis Lui could come into the starting side.

The team otherwise looks fairly settled, with a host of forwards jostling for bench spots.

Jamie Soward says: Curtis Scott takes over from Joey Leilua and partners with Bailey Simonsson on that right edge. The biggest test for the Raiders is living up to the hype of last year and how they bottle that.

The adjustment of George Williams at halfback will be of some concern if he doesn't gel early.
