Injuries rocked the Raiders last year but they still had a crack in the finals. After beating reigning premiers Sydney Roosters, they were thrashed by Melbourne Storm in the preliminary final.
This year they should be strong again, although they have lost a few top-shelf players. John Bateman and Nick Cotric are gone, meaning coach Ricky Stuart will need to come up with a new right-edge combination.
Stuart will be delighted to have the services of Josh Hodgson, Corey Horsburgh and Emre Guler, who were all injured at various stages last year. New recruit Ryan James will be pushing for his first game since early 2019.
The Raiders have found the right balance of youth and experience. Led by gun half Jack Wighton and barnstorming prop Josh Papalii, they will again be a formidable force.

Canberra Raiders history
The Canberra Raiders joined the NRL in 1982, as part of the NSWRFL premiership's first expansion outside Sydney. Since then, they've won three premierships out of six grand finals played. Their last premiership win was in 1994.
The Raiders were the first non-Sydney team to make the finals, feature in a grand final and win a premiership (1989). They play their home games at Canberra Stadium.
