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 suffered growing pains in 2017 after an astonishing 2016 season. Six wins from their first 16 games put them well behind the eight-ball and, although they were able to get back in the race with four wins from their next five, they ultimately fell short of a finals spot, finishing 10th.

Senior coach: Ricky Stuart
Captain: Jarrod Croker

Premierships: 1989, 1990, 1994
