The first round of the NRL season continues tonight when the Newcastle Knights take on the Canberra Raiders at McDonald Jones Stadium in Newcastle. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 8:00pm (AEDT).

Ricky Stuart is urging Canberra fans to be patient with teenage five-eighth Ethan Strange as he deploys his playmaker of the future in Newcastle.

Strange, 19, beat Kaeo Weekes to the No.6 jersey for Thursday night’s clash at McDonald Jones Stadium, where some young Raider faces will look to defy lowly pre-season expectations and beat the more fancied Knights.

In their first outing of the post-Jack Wighton era, Strange will pair with veteran Jamal Fogarty in the halves against a Newcastle side that rattled off 10 straight wins to reach last season’s semi-finals.

In the Knights line-up, Enari Tuala takes Sydney Roosters-bound Dominic Young’s vacant wing spot, with recruits Jack Cogger and Kai Pearce-Paul coming off the bench.
