Raiders hooker Josh Hodgson.

The Green Machine rolls back into Wagga Wagga with Canberra playing host to the Newcastle Knights at McDonald Park on Saturday.

The Raiders were successful in their first trip to the heart of the Riverina in 2019 and will be hoping to maintain a perfect record there with the 2019 grand finalists welcoming back star prop Josh Papalii and halfback George Williams in a much-needed boost.

Newcastle will also welcome a change of scenery and with Origin fullback Kalyn Ponga leading the way, and will be looking to make a statement after being challenged by coach Adam O'Brien.

But, importantly for game attendees, there's just as much to look forward to off the field with an EISS Super activation providing many fun activities.

This clash is the third of five games in the EISS Super Regional Series with previous matches being held in Mudgee (round six) and Bathurst (round eight). Coffs Harbour (round 12) and Tamworth (23) will complete the series.
