Notched up attempt 150 last weekend and does not reveal any signs of slowing down anytime soon. Impressive through the season, Jennings was dangerous and might have the ability to show his skill and smarts up against his opposing Canberra backs. He still possesses remarkable speed but his centre partnership with Maika Sivo is the most dangerous.
A big registering for the Raiders, coming from the Storm in the pre-season, Curtis Scott Has needed a 2020 to forget with off-season drama at the beginning of the year adding to a bad start to his Canberra career.
