Canberra Raiders winger Semi Valemei has re-signed with the club for a further three years, which will keep him in green until the end of the 2024 season.
Valemei burst onto the scene in 2020 for the Raiders playing 10 matches in his debut season, winning the clubs rookie of the year award.
So far this season he’s played four matches and has been named on the wing this weekend to play the Titans at GIO Stadium.
Valemei said he has enjoyed every moment of his time since joining the club and looked forward to continuing his career in Canberra.
“I’m very happy to remain here for the next three years,” Valemei said. “Since coming over from Fiji the Raiders have been fantastic for my development and I’m looking forward to continuing playing here and developing even further.”
Raiders CEO Don Furner said the re-signing of Valemei was another big positive for the club as they moved to retain their up and coming stars.
“Semi has shown really positive signs since making his NRL debut last season and he’s a player we know still has plenty of improvement and development ahead of him,” Furner said. “It’s another show of faith in the club with another young player committing for an extended period which is really pleasing.”
