Joel Monaghan Canberra RaidersCanberra junior Joel Monaghan has chosen to remain with the Raiders until 2012 after signing a new contract today.

Recently achieve Origin and Test selection in the past few years, Monaghan has agreed to terms after extended negotiations with the Canberra club.

“Canberra is the place where I grew up and I’ve played the best footy of my career here so it’s a given for me to stay,” Monaghan confirmed

“I’m really looking forward now to playing well for the Raiders and hopefully getting to the semi-finals again this year.”

The move sets the scene for older brother Michael to re-join the club after experiencing home-sickness in the UK.

Currently playing with Super League outfit Warrington, Michael Monaghan would be a handy pickup for the Raiders who have some strong young talent and a fresh outlook under new coach David Furner.
