The Canberra Raiders can confirm New Zealand International Corey Harawira-Naera will join the club, after the Bulldogs agreed to release him from the remainder of his current NRL contract.
Harawira-Naera will join the club for the remainder of the 2020 season and for two more seasons until the end of 2022.
He will join the squad for training next week, once he’s been cleared by the NRL’s Apollo committee.
Raiders CEO Don Furner said the signing would help boost the club for the rest of this season and looked forward to seeing Harawira-Naera continue his career with the Raiders.
“Corey is a very talented player who’s played representative football for New Zealand and we’re looking forward to having him join the club for the next two and half years,” Furner said. “He will join the squad for training once he’s been cleared by the Apollo committee and then its up to the coaching staff to work out when he may play his first game for the club.”
