Michael Bani
One-year deal

The Canberra Raiders are excited to announce the signing of former Manly Sea Eagles and North Queensland Cowboys flyer Michael Bani on a one year deal for 2012.

Bani’s acquisition will add fantastic depth to the club’s outside backs and in turn increase the competition for spots in first grade in several positions.

“He brings NRL experience to our outside backs which is what we’re looking for. He’s got speed to burn and more than enough ability to put pressure on the other players in his positions which is what we need here,” Player Recruitment Officer David Hamilton said.

As he has missed most of the pre-season, Bani will be based with the club’s affiliate side, Mounties in the New South Wales Cup. He has already joined the squad for training and will look to press for a first grade position as the season progresses.
