A five-man squad for the 2018 NRL Auckland Nines will be announced on Friday with the inclusion of players who have previously played in the league and were part of the 2018 Super League squad.
Key points:Razorbacks to be in the mix for five playersThis is expected to be the first time a team of five has been selected for the Auckland NINERazorback CEO Todd Kelly said the squad was going to be “unstoppable”.
“The team that we’ve got now is unrivaled,” Kelly said.
“It’s got all the players that we need to win a game and the opportunity for them to do so and be the best they can be.”
Kelly said he was hopeful the club could pick up a player or two to form a competitive side.
“I’ve got a number of the guys that were part in the last five games that I think can play a big part in our team and give us that edge,” Kelly told ABC Radio New Zealand.
Razorhead has been a mainstay of Super League for the past two decades and has been drawn into the competition for a number the past six years.
Riders have won eight and drawn one of their past 11 games at home, having won just two at Eden Park.
