Canberra have announced the signing for former Newcastle forward JJ Felise on a two-year deal.

Felise will be contracted until at least the end of the 2020 season, after making 15 appearances over the past three years.

“It’s great to be here, the team have been very welcoming on the first day,” Felise told

“When the opportunity came to move down here, I jumped at it because of the history and tradition that this Club has but also because of the talent within the playing group.

The 22-year-old adds depth to the Raiders’ forward pack, and Canberra’s recruitment and High-Performance Director Peter Mulholland is excited to welcome him to the club.
