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 Raiders appear to be once again rebuilding upon a foundation of local talent such as Jarrod Croker and young players like Blake Austin.

2015 was a disappointing year for the Raiders, finishing in 10th however in 2016 the Raiders proved to be the surprise packet of the NRL.

Under the guidance of Ricky Stuart, the Raiders finished second in the regular season and advanced as far as the semi-finals where they lost 14-12 to the Melbourne Storm.
