Head coach Paul Green has named his squad for Saturday’s Round 17 National Rugby League clash against the Raiders in Canberra.

New recruit Te Maire Martin is in line to make his Cowboys debut after being named to partner Michael Morgan in the halves.

Martin joined the Cowboys from the Penrith Panthers mid-season and played 13 games for the Sydney club over two seasons, scoring four tries.

Kyle Laybutt moves to the reserves list, while the rest of the team remains unchanged from the one that clinched a thrilling Round 16 victory over the Panthers in Saturday afternoon’s match in Townsville.

This weekend’s game in the nation’s capital precedes the second bye of the season for the Cowboys.
