SYDNEY, Oct 9 AAP - Canberra's off-season started on the right foot on Tuesday with winger Sandor Earl re-signing with the NRL club for a further two seasons.

Earl, who joined mid-season from Penrith, finished as one of the Raiders' most reliable players in their run to the finals and racked up an impressive eight tries following the switch.

The 23-year-old was encouraged by the club's promising late season form and admitted it played a role in his decision to stay put until the end of 2014.

"It's scary to think what we can do as a group with a full pre-season together and I can't wait to see what we can achieve next year," he said.

"We've got a really strong team right across the park and the edge I play on has some very talented players like Josh McCrone, Josh Papalii and Blake Ferguson so I know I'm always going to be a chance to be in the action.

"... This deal caps off what has been a great year for me and I'm really excited about being able to sign for two more years.

"It's another test for me and I'm already looking forward to pre-season and getting ready for what I know will be a big year for the Raiders."

Raiders chief executive Don Furner said the new deal was just reward for Earl, who the club have high expectations for.
