Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart has signed a three-year contract extension with the club.

Stuart was on contract until the end of 2020, but he has signed for a further three years on top of that.

He will remain at the Raiders until at least the end of the 2023 campaign.

Stuart said: “I’m honoured to be given this opportunity to play for this club and now to be their head coach, I’m so honoured and even more so today.

“I’m excited with the development of the club. It’s not just about coaching first-grade, it’s about the whole club.

“My passion and enthusiasm for the club is 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

“I’m like the fan who sits out there and braves the cold. I want to win on the weekend and win a competition and I can assure you that every waking moment is about delivering that promise one day.”
