Raiders have today confirmed the signing of Newcastle Knights forward Joel Edwards for three seasons commencing in 2013.
The Cessnock Goannas junior made his debut for Newcastle in 2010 and has since gone on to play 45 matches for the Knights including 19 this season.
Raiders CEO Don Furner said the club was thrilled to have Edwards join them in 2013 and said he will be a more than handy acquisition for the club.
"Joel has been fantastic for the Knights this season and we're looking forward to him joining us next year and for the two seasons after that," Furner said. "He's a young player on the rise and at age 24 he's just starting to work into his NRL career and we're looking forward to him continuing his progress with the Raiders.
"In the meantime, we wish him well for the rest of this season with the Knights."
The Raiders have also confirmed the signing of Bulldogs forward Jake Foster, who will join the club in 2013 for two seasons.
