The Canberra Raiders have secured halfback Aidan Sezer’s signature, with the 27-year old signing a new two-year deal with the club.

“To sort the contract stuff out is a breath of fresh air and to have my future locked up for the next couple of years is a positive move for myself,” Sezer told raiders.com.au.

“I love being around the boys and enjoy the club. There’s a lot of factors that go into the decision but I’m happy with the decision ultimately and I look forward to representing the Raiders and Canberra.”

After crossing from the Titans 2016, Sezer has played 62 games for Canberra, taking his total tally to 100 NRL matches.

Raiders recruitment and high-performance director Peter Mulholland was thrilled to lock Sezer away for another two years.

“Aidan’s a very talented player who we believe can continue to improve and become a dominant player for our club,” Mulholland told raiders.com.au.

“He’s an organising halfback who is an important part of our team and we’re looking forward to seeing him lead us around the park for the next two years.”

  1. Terrible signing. Sezer has made little impact at the club. To let Austin go and keep Sezer shows a serious lack of judgement and competence. While Raiders are good at spotting talent in youth and development players they are clearly blind to Sezer’s poor performancea over the last 3 years. Zero tackle should do an analysis to highlight Raiders single biggest issue at the club, that is Sezer.

      • His ongoing performance has cost us the season. Sure he may not be the worst performer on a single day but his constant below average poor performances have cost the raiders dearly. I believe that multiple things have been overlooked in this decision and it is a very sad time for the club. He has and never will be a considered a top notch half and unfortunately forces raiders to look to non traditional methods and an over reliance on other positions to even have a chance of winning a premiership. If you did deeper you will find a culture issue with him also…. check out his quote “I love being around the boys and enjoy the club. There’s a lot of factors that go into the decision but I’m happy with the decision ultimately and I look forward to representing the Raiders and Canberra.” – Key words ‘a lot of factors’ ‘ultimately’ ‘representing’ These have negative connotations and I believe the reason he signed was that there was no better offer out there.

  2. I am a fan of the raiders. My love for the club will never be exceeded by a player. Sezer was a good signing back the first time but he is not up to scratch for the NRL let alone the raiders.
