The Canberra Raiders have received a huge boost heading into the last home match of the regular season, with Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad extending his contract with the Canberra Raiders until the end of 2023.
Nicoll-Klokstad was currently on contract with the Raiders until the end of the 2020 season, however, his wonderful debut season for the Raiders has seen him gain a three-year extension on his current deal, joining Joe Tapine as Raiders signed until the end of 2023.
A stunning debut season from Nicoll-Klokstad has seen him play all 23 matches to date, scoring 11 tries and cementing himself as the Raiders number one fullback.
Nicoll-Klokstad said that he's stoked to be re-signing with the Raiders.
"I'm really happy to be staying in Canberra. I still pinch myself every week that I get to play in the NRL and to get the opportunity to stay at this wonderful club for another three years on top of this year is fantastic."
Raiders CEO Don Furner said the re-signing of Nicoll-Klokstad on a long-term deal gave both the club and Nicoll-Klokstad long term stability and said they would be looking forward to seeing him continue to develop his game for the club.
“Charnze has had a wonderful first season for the club after joining us late in the pre-season. He’s taken his opportunity with both hands and has established himself as an NRL player,” Furner said. “We see him as our long-term fullback and it’s a credit to his dedication and work ethic to see him rewarded with this new deal.
“We believe the best is still yet to come for Charnze as he continues to work on his game and become a more experienced player at NRL level.”
