Squad Update: Raiders v Panthers

The Raiders have reduced their squad to 19 ahead of tomorrow afternoon's clash against the Penrith Panthers at GIO Stadium. 

Xavier Savage will not play against the Panthers, with Albert Hopoate replacing him in the starting line-up.

Raiders Coach Ricky Stuart said Savage's ankle injury had forced him out of this game, but he was confident he'd be ready for the Raiders round 22 match against the Dragons. 

"We couldn't quite get Xavier's ankle right for this weekend as he's been carrying it for a couple of weeks and he needed to have a week off," Stuart said. "It's a very important part of the season for us and we need him back on the field at 100% fitness."

"He's been doing a wonderful job for us over the past couple of months and we need him to get his ankle right and get him back in next week when he's fully fit." 

Semi Valemei will move into the 18th man position with Ata Mariota named in the 19.
