Riordan debuts as Red V forced into changes

Former-Wallaroo Sarah Riordan will make her NRLW debut off the interchange on Saturday with Ella Koster and Tara McGrath-West both set to miss the clash.

Renee Targett returns at hooker with Kaarla Cowan shifting to lock and Zali Hopkins replacing Sophie Clancy (head knock) on the interchange.

Jamilee Bright returns from a neck injury into the second row with Shenai Lendill shifting to the wing in place of Cortez Te Pou.

Alexis Tauaneai starts at prop with Roxy Murdoch reverting to the interchange.

Dummett earns debut for Raiders

Alanna Dummett will make her NRLW debut in the centres for the visitors with Mackenzie Wiki unavailable due to a foot sprain.

Hailing from Bega, Dummett represented the Blues in under-19s State of Origin a year ago before helping lead Mounties to a Harvey Norman Women's Premiership title earlier this year.

It is otherwise smooth sailing for Darrin Borthwick's squad as they look to extend their winning streak to three games.

Berry, Bartlett jostle for history

The NRLW’s two all-time leading try-scorers – Teagan Berry and Madison Bartlett – will come up against each other in Round 4.

The pair were the Red V’s wing pairing throughout the 2021 season which ended in a heartbreaking Grand Final loss.

Berry has notched 14 tries from her 17 career NRLW appearances – including back-to-back doubles to kick-off 2023 – whilst Bartlett – who managed a double in Canberra’s season opener – has scored 13 tries from her 18 career outings.

Both players will hope to add to their impressive tallies come Saturday and, with the season already nearing its midway point, the competition points loom as invaluable for both clubs.
