Canberra forward Siliva Havili has signed a contract extension with the Raiders, and will remain in the nation's capital for at least another two seasons.

The 25-year-old has played all 17 games for the Raiders this season, and was impressive at hooker with Josh Hodgson out injured to start the season.

Havili spoke to the club's website about the re-signing, and can't wait to continue his career at Canberra until at least the end of 2020.

"Canberra is the best place for me to be in terms of my career and I'm really excited about re-signing with the Raiders," Havili told

"Ricky Stuart and the players and staff have really welcomed me into the club and I'm really enjoying being part of this team."

Canberra's Recruitment and High-Performance Director Peter Mulholland spoke about locking down Havili, and said the club are excited to keep the versatile player around.

"Siliva has done a wonderful job for us this year and has gone from a player who could handle a few minutes from the bench to a player who is capable of putting together a full 80-minute NRL performance," Mulholland told the club's website.

"He's a versatile player who can play a number of positions and roles for us and we believe he will continue to improve as a player with the more matches he plays at the top level."
