Blake Austin Signs with the Raiders

The Canberra Raiders are excited to announce the signing of Wests Tiger Blake Austin on a deal which will see him at the club for the next three seasons commencing 2015.

Austin had a stellar season with the Tigers in 2014 playing 19 matches, re-igniting his career after joining them at the beginning of the season from the Penrith Panthers.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said the club is thrilled to have Austin join them and said he’s looking forward to him having a big pre-season with the club.

“Blake’s an exciting young player who will be a fantastic addition to our squad,” Furner said. “He’s been in outstanding form in 2014 and we are confident he can bring that form to Canberra in 2015 and continue it with the Raiders.”
