Canberra Raiders

Canberra RaidersThe Canberra Raiders were admitted to the competition in 1982 as the first side not be to based in New South Wales. Tremendous success early in their first decade saw them claim three premierships in a six-season stretch, but although they’ve made regular appearances in the finals since, meaningful success has been harder to come by.

The Raiders improved out of sight in 2016, improving from 10th place to finish 2nd on the ladder. A narrow loss to Cronulla in the qualifying final forced them to take the hard road to the Grand Final, and although they were able to defeat Penrith in their semi final, a loss to Melbourne saw them fall short of the big dance once again.

Senior coach: Ricky Stuart
Captain: Jarrod Croker
2016 finish: 2nd
Premierships: 1989, 1990, 1994
