The Canberra Raiders can confirm Melbourne Storm centre Curtis Scott has agreed to a four-year deal with the club commencing 2020.

Scott, 22, has been granted a release from the final two years of his contract with the Storm and will now take up the new deal with the Raiders which will see him with the club until the end of the 2023 season.

A dynamic ball running centre, Scott has scored 18 tries in his 48 appearances for the Storm and joins the Raiders with an opportunity to further establish himself as one of the games rising stars.

Raiders NRL Recruitment & High-Performance Director Peter Mulholland said the signing of Scott was very exciting for the club, with his potential and experience at such a young age making him a very valuable acquisition.

“Curtis is a player we believe has a very big future in the game and we’re thrilled to have him join us for the next four seasons,” Mulholland said. “At just 22 he’s already been able to play almost 50 NRL games and he’s an exciting talent who will give our squad a player who is hungry to further his development and become an even better player.”

Scott will commence training with the club early December.
