Stuart extends Raiders stay


Canberra Raiders head coach Ricky Stuart has signed a contract extension with the NRL club.

Stuart, who took over at the Raiders in 2014, will remain in Canberra until at least the end of the 2020 campaign.

The 50-year-old has the Raiders sitting 10th in the NRL this season after winning six of 14 matches.

He led Canberra impressively last year as they reached the preliminary final before going down to Melbourne Storm.

Stuart has enjoyed a long association with the club, having played more than 200 games for Canberra in the 1980s and '90s.
