The Canberra Raiders have named their squad for Saturday afternoon’s match against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Nestrata Jubilee Stadium.

The Raiders will have three NRL debutants, with Adam Cook, Darby Medlyn and Jarrett Subloo all set to make their NRL debuts, while Matt Frawley will make his club debut.

Sam Williams also returns to the side for the first time this season at halfback and will Captain the club for the first time.

Adam Cook replaces Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad at fullback who will miss one week with a minor rib injury.

Frawley and Sam Williams replace Jack Wighton and George Williams in the halves, with both players rested this weekend. George Williams missed the majority of round 19 after failing his HIA so he will be rested as a precaution.

Darby Medlyn and Jarrett Subloo have been named on the interchange bench.

Harley Smith-Shields and Matt Timoko have been named in the centres, with Jarrod Croker rested and Jordan Rapana missing one week with a minor knee injury.

Sia Soliola will make his return to the team on Saturday after recovering from a facial fracture earlier in the season and replaces Josh Papalii who has been rested.

John Bateman has been cleared of any serious elbow injury but will be rested this weekend along with Elliott Whitehead, with Hudson Young and Corey Harawira-Naera to start for the Raiders in the second-row.

Tom Starling will start at hooker, with Siliva Havili starting at lock and Kai O’Donnell on the bench.
