Toyota Cup star centre Daniel Vidot will make his NRL debut this weekend against Newcastle, when the Raiders take on the Knights at EnergyAustralia Stadium on Saturday night. Vidot comes into the side on the wing for Justin Carney, who was ruled out for the remainder of the season after breaking his leg against the Gold Coast Titans on Sunday. Carney has undergone a successful surgery on his right leg to repair the breaks to his fibula and tibia and will return to rehabilitation training in a few weeks time once he can apply pressure back on his right foot. The Raiders have been forced to make two other changes to their side for this weekends match with David Shillington (Qld) and Tom Learoyd-Lahrs (NSW) both being selected for State of Origin III. This means Raiders forwards Scott Logan and Joe Picker will come back into the NRL side for the game against the Knights, after both showing strong form for Souths Logan in the Queensland Cup. Joel Thompson also comes into the Raiders side for the first time in 2009 after being named on the bench for Trevor Thurling, while Glen Turner has been named as 18th man. Raiders Coach David Furner said the inclusion of Daniel Vidot would give them a strong option out wide and said he believed he was ready for the step up to NRL level. Like
