THE Canberra Raiders have named three Crokers in their squad for the 2016 Auckland Nines,  along with some new faces set to make their debuts for the club.

Goulburn and Crookwell fans in particular will be thrilled with the inclusion of Raiders legend Jason Croker who will make a comeback for the tournament, with his nephew Lachlan named to play in the team in the halves.

Jarrod Croker, only distantly related to Jason and Lachlan, will once again Captain the Green Machine at the annual tournament.

Kato Ottio and Zac Santo are set to play their first matches for the Raiders, as they look to impress ahead of the upcoming trial match against the Knights in a few weeks’ time.

As they have done in the past, the Raiders will also use the Nines as an opportunity to blood some exciting new talent, with NYC stars Thomas Cronan and Jack Williams getting their chance to shine on the big stage.

Powerhouse forwards Paul Vaughan and Shannon Boyd are set to make their nines debut for the Green Machine at the annual tournament too.
