The Raiders have received some good news ahead of the 2022 season, with local junior Nick Cotric to return to the club effective immediately.

Cotric has been granted an early release from his contract with the Bulldogs and has signed a three-year deal with the Raiders until the end of the 2024 season.  

Raiders CEO Don Furner said Cotric’s return is a timely boost for the Raiders, with the representative winger returning to the club where he began his NRL career and to his hometown of Canberra.

“We’re looking forward to having Nick re-join the club for the next three seasons,” Furner said. “Nick is a local boy who made his way through the local rugby league pathway program to the NRL, NSW and Australia while playing for us and we know the skills and capability he has as a player.”

“Nick has indicated to us that he’s really excited about returning to Canberra and the Raiders, and we’re confident he can play his best football for us.”

“The Raiders are a proud development club who invest heavily in our pathway program and to have a top-level player like Nick Cotric who has been through our system return to the club is a show of faith in this.”

Cotric will look to resume training with the Raiders this week.
