Canberra Raiders

Canberra Raiders1982 signalled the arrival of the Canberra Raiders who were responsible for unearthing some of Australian Rugby League’s greatest ever players. With a team containing Mal Meninga, Laurie Daley, Bradley Clyde and the Walter brothers, the Raiders achieved back to back Premierships in 1989 and 1990, before succumbing to the Panthers in 1991. Since then, times have been difficult for the Raiders with injuries and player exodus often plaguing the club’s Premiership aspirations, but the club appear to the once again rebuilding upon a foundation of local talent such as Jarrod Croker and young players like Blake Austin.

2014 was another difficult year for the Raiders, finishing the regular season in 15th place – second last.
