Raiders re-sign coach Ricky Stuart

Canberra have shown their faith in coach Ricky Stuart by re-signing him until the end of the 2020 NRL season.

Stuart is attempting to steer the Raiders to back-to-back finals after they came to within in a win of the grand final last year.

But the club has endured an inconsistent season, sitting 10th on the ladder midway through the year with six wins.

Stuart took over at the Raiders ahead of the 2014 season after coaching stints at the Sydney Roosters, Cronulla and Parramatta.

The Raiders missed the finals in his first two years at the helm before narrowly losing to Melbourne in last year's preliminary final.

Stuart had an illustrious playing career at halfback with the Raiders, winning three premierships.
