Who is the Raiders' must-have Nines player?

The inaugural Dick Smith NRL Auckland Nines will see the 16 NRL clubs competing for $2.6 million in prize money in a two-day blockbuster over February 15 and 16. While the individual 15-man squads are unknown at this stage, each club is committed to fielding 12 players from their top 25 squad, including at least one of their five highest-paid players.

So who is the one Raiders player who is most likely to shine at the tournament? Have your say below.

Josh Papalii - Papalii's powerhouse performances were a feature of the Raiders' 2013 and the Kangaroos' World Cup win.

Anthony Milford - Incredibly evasive with a blinding turn of pace, Milford will be hard to stop.

Terry Campese - The Raiders skipper is reportedly fitter than he's been for years and when in form his vision and kicking can win matches.

Reece Robinson - The fleet-footed winger or fullback is one of the game's best broken play runners.

Jarrod Croker - A dangerous ball runner and underrated defender.

Josh McCrone - A utility playmaker who can kick, run, tackle and serve from dummy-half, his all-round skills could boost team balance.

Shaun Fensom - An incredibly effective defender who does a lot of cleanup work, Fensom will be needed to plug the extra gaps created by reduced numbers on field.
