Having now cemented the fullback spot at the Canberra Raiders as his own, the club have made sure that Xavier Savage is around long-term.
The talented and enigmatic fullback has signed a new deal with the Raiders that will see him stay at the club until the end of the 2025 season.
Savage, already contracted for 2023, has officially signed a two-year extension to his current deal.
As the Raiders look to build a young core moving forward, CEO Don Furner knows how important it is to keep their young guys.
“Xavier is an exciting young talent who is learning the game and improving with the experience and opportunity he’s getting at NRL level,” Furner said.
“The Raiders are a development club and it’s important for us to retain the young players we’ve developed and help them in their progression into the NRL.”
“We’ve seen a number of our younger stats re-commit to the club this season and it’s a really good sign for the future of the club that these players know they’ll have an opportunity when they commit to Canberra.”
