CANBERRA have kept rookie hotshot Nick Cotric off the NRL player market by handing him a two-year extension, keeping him at the club until the end of the 2020 NRL season.

“The boys have been a huge help for me and it helped me make my decision to re- sign.

Adam Clydesdale rejoins Raiders, Kurt Baptiste's future in the air, Terry Campese returns - The Canberra Times

Terry Campese is one step closer to a hometown farewell after he was named in Italy's starting side for a World Cup clash against Fiji in Canberra on Friday night.

Campese has missed the first two pool matches of Italy's campaign after injuring his calf at training.

It threatened to ruin the former Raiders skipper's hopes of playing at Canberra Stadium for the last time, but he is on the verge of fulfilling his goal and honouring his family heritage.

Campese has been named at five-eighth, with James Tedesco shifting back to fullback and former Raiders Paul Vaughan to start in the front row.

Campese will go head to head with Fiji star Jarryd Hayne, who sent the NRL world into meltdown last week when it emerged he reportedly wanted to quit his Gold Coast Titans contract.

NRL: Canberra Raiders land Brad Abbey as Clay Priest joins Canterbury Bulldogs - The Sydney Morning Herald

Canterbury Bulldogs fullback Brad Abbey is officially a Raider after the two clubs finalised a player-swap that sends Clay Priest to Belmore.

Abbey joins the Raiders on a two-year deal with Canberra recruitment manager Peter Mulholland dubbing the 20-year old an exciting talent with huge potential.

The former Junior Kiwis representative played four games for the Bulldogs in his rookie NRL season, with the 20-year-old set to add depth to the Canberra backline.

"Brad was standout at junior level and was one of the best young fullbacks to come out of the NYC competition," Mulholland said.

"At just 20 years of age he showed he can perform at NRL level this year with the Bulldogs and we know he'll work hard during the pre-season and will add strong depth to our squad."

NRL: Canberra Raiders lock up Josh Hodgson with Joey Leilua staying put - The Sydney Morning Herald

Raiders hooker Josh Hodgson is on the verge of signing a four-year contract extension to stay in Canberra, warding off speculation he would head across the ditch to join New Zealand.

The contract extension would keep Hodgson at the Raiders until the end of the 2022 season, according to ABC Grandstand.

The Raiders have also reportedly doused speculation that centre Joey Leilua will head to the Gold Coast Titans despite the club's need to become salary cap compliant.

Instead Kurt Baptiste has re-emerged as the player most likely to find a new home for the 2018 season despite already rejecting an offer from the Warrington Wolves in the English Super League.

The Raiders already have Hodgson and Adam Clydsdale on the books, the latter rejoining the club after spending the back end of 2017 with...

NRL: Canberra Raiders boss Don Furner eyes five prized re-signings - The Sydney Morning Herald

Canberra Raiders chief executive Don Furner has revealed a five-man hit list of re-signings he hopes will lead the Green Machine to the promised land.

Samoan internationals Josh Papalii and Junior Paulo, first-choice halves Blake Austin and Aidan Sezer, and lock forward Luke Bateman lead a group of players Furner wants to retain.

All five are off-contract at the end of 2018, and Austin and Bateman loom as the early targets with Papalii and Paulo not due back on Raiders duties until January.

Furner indicated the club is now in a position to ramp up negotiations after Raiders coach Ricky Stuart returned to club headquarters this week.

Kato Ottio's two-year deal has expired but the Papua New Guinean outside back will return to the Raiders at the end of the World Cup, while his Mounties teammate Brent Naden has left...

Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart has put his senior players on notice, throwing down the gauntlet for the youngsters to go after their NRL spots.

Stuart returned to Raiders HQ this week after a short break as the players began their second week of pre-season.

He has "nearly a full deck", excluding the World Cup players, as the Raiders begin their push to return to the NRL finals after finishing a disappointing 10th this year.

With Dave Taylor leaving for Toronto and Clay Priest joining Canterbury, Stuart said it was up to the their young forwards to fill the void.

Prop Charlie Gubb has joined the Green Machine from the New Zealand Warriors, while the Raiders have the likes of Liam Knight, Makahesi Makatoa and Corey Horsburgh looking to establish themselves.

A tough encounter against the Canberra Raiders sowed the seed for Charlie Gubb to join the Green Machine.

Now the 27-year-old former New Zealand Warrior wants to establish himself in Ricky Stuart's 17.

Gubb played 40 NRL games for the Warriors across five seasons, but the rugby union junior was looking for a fresh start.

Now his sights are set on being in the Canberra side for their round one clash against the Gold Coast Titans on the Gold Coast in four months' time.

With Dave Taylor and Clay Priest having left and the retirement of Jeff Lima, the door's open for Gubb to establish himself in the NRL.

"I want to focus on having a good year myself and I just want to crack into Ricky's 17, that's my goal - to be playing every week. I'll just do whatever job I need to do for...

Gold Coast Titans earmark Canberra Raiders centre Joey Leilua as Jarryd Hayne's replacement - The Sydney Morning Herald

The Gold Coast have earmarked Canberra centre Joey Leilua as the man to replace Jarryd Hayne if the cross-code star returns to Parramatta.

Hayne, in camp with the Fijian national squad, is considering whether to ask for a release from his $1.2 million Titans deal to switch back to the Eels. He will need to take a hefty pay cut to do so as the Eels are only prepared to offer him about half that amount for a one-year deal.
