Raiders name five recruits for Rd 1

The Canberra Raiders have named their round one team to take on the Sharks on Sunday night at Remondis Stadium.

In a boost for the team, Shaun Fensom will take his place at lock for the Green Machine after passing a fitness test at training this morning for a hamstring strain.

Jordan Rapana will get the first chance to impress in the regular season on the wing after he was named to partner Edrick Lee on the Raiders right edge, with Sisa Waqa set to debut on the left with Raiders Captain Jarrod Croker.

Waqa, Iosia Soliola, Josh Hodgson, Blake Austin and Frank-Paul Nuuausala will all make their debuts for the club, while Mitch Cornish will start the season in the Raiders number seven jersey partnering Austin in the halves.
