NRL: Raiders ace pens new deal

Canberra Raiders have been given a huge boost with the news Corey Harawira-Naera has penned a new three-year deal with the club.

The Raiders are priced at 97/100 to beat the Sharks at GIO Stadium on Friday night and the news of Harawira-Naera signing should give them a timely boost.

Three-year deal

The second-row forward has been a revelation since arriving from the Canterbury Bulldogs and the Raiders were keen to tie him down to fresh terms.

Harawira-Naera is now locked in until at least the end of the 2025 NRL campaign and he is also delighted to have pledged his future.

"The club has been really welcoming since I’ve been down here after leaving another club," Harawira-Naera told the club's website.

"It’s very exciting, I love my life down here and I love the boys and I’m glad that the club want to have me as well because most players struggle and get a bit worried when their contract is on the line. I’m glad to get it done and I can focus on the season."

Finals aim

The Raiders slipped out of the top eight last season and now the aim is to get back there and play finals again in 2022.

The forward has been buoyed by what he has seen in pre-season and is hopeful the green machine can have a strong season.

"Last year was probably really disappointing for the whole club and us players in general, but it’s been a fresh and good start in the preseason," he added.

"In the trials, the boys played well, and everyone is looking fit, and everyone is keen for the season to start now."
