Canberra great Mal Meninga has named his all-time Raiders side on foxsports.com.au.

He named Peter Jackson as captain of the side despite the centre never leading the Green Machine during his playing days and Tim Sheens as coach.

Meniga did not pick himself in the line-up.

“I gave Peter Jackson the captaincy because Sheensy (coach Tim Sheens) told me recently that Jacko was going to be captain before he moved onto the Broncos. It also saves any battle of the egos and controversy,” Meninga said.

Meninga explained that he picked a side that could compete in today’s game, choosing a variety of skilled and quick players.

“A smart team full of speed, highly skilled and various qualities. A versatile bench that would make a difference when they come on.”
