The Canberra Raiders have named strongest available team for the trial match against the Bulldogs in Bega on Saturday.

The near-full-strength team will look to back up their trial win against the Parramatta Eels last week while allowing a number of their veteran players to get some solid minutes ahead of Round 1 kicking off in a few weeks.

“I was very pleased with how our younger players performed against Parramatta’s NRL players,” Stuart said on the club website.  “The team we take to Bega will be our strongest team that we have available.”

“We will be looking to give our main squad around 60 minutes and we will be looking to field our strongest team while we’re down there.

“What I really like about our squad is that there is a lot of young players coming through pushing a couple of our senior players which is really healthy competition.”
