Raiders Coach Ricky Stuart has named a very strong 21 man squad for the Raiders final trial match against the Newcastle Knights at Seiffert Oval on Saturday.

New Recruits Sisa Waqa, Blake Austin, Josh Hodgson, Sia Soliola, Sam Williams and Frank-Paul Nuuausala have all been named, while Jack Wighton and Jarrod Croker will back up after playing in the All-Stars game on the Gold Coast last weekend.

David Shillington will start the match after a successful return from a pectoral injury last weekend, where he played 30 minutes for Mounties in their NSW Cup trial match.
