The Canberra Raiders Cup will benefit from the NRL's Gold Coast bubble, with six Raiders set to inject a spark into the competition as they link up with their local clubs.
Albert Hopoate who has recently agreed to terms with the Raiders on a two-year deal will be joined by Clay Webb at the Woden Valley Rams
Leo Thompson and Darby Medlyn will head to the West Belconnen Warriors, with Ata Mariota joining the Tuggeranong Bushrangers.
Adrian Trevilyan will travel north out of the nation's capital to join the Goulburn City Bulldogs.
The distribution of players across the local league allows the fringe Raiders players not a part of the club's Gold Coast bubble to continue playing rugby league in 2021.
Bulldogs forward Tyson Greenwood was delighted with the professionalism and experience the likes of Trevilyan would bring into the competition.
"It's good to have him back, a bit of extra talent and a nice level head to come into the squad," Greenwood said.
"The professionalism that they bring to the club, they've all been in systems a long time so that professionalism they bring back to training is very good and it's good for the younger boys to kind of see what you need to do and what you're capable of doing.
"Obviously we're not the only club that's got players, the whole comp's been lucky enough to be assigned players. So that adds a lot of skill to the comp and hopefully a bit more talent you know, get some good footy together".

Goulburn is looking to bounce out of their bye round with a win against the Queanbeyan Blues after collecting two draws from their previous two outings, against the top-of-the-table Gungahlin Bulls, and cellar dwellers Woden.
"Yeah, obviously the draw against Woden was a bit unlucky for us, we had a very big lead, and we were unlucky to let that slip," Greenwood said.
"But then the week after against the bulls having a 22-all draw against them being the top of the comp was very reassuring for me and my boys as well.
"So, it's very positive with that result, the week before a bit unlucky but that's footy and you just get on with it and keep going."
"The Blues are a very skillful side, Campo [Terry Campese] is back in the side directing traffic so they have a lot of composure with him back in the team.
"They're a very big pack and they're quite skilled from the back so we'll come out and match them in the middle and hopefully, our backs can get the job done and we'll get away with the win hopefully.
"The comp is very even, and you can see that in the ladder, I think first and second 21 and 20 [points] and then third, fourth, fifth there's one point between us and then again [Belconnen United] Sharks and Tuggeranong are only just behind the fifth-place so it's a very tight comp, and in our results, that's what it shows.
