GLEN Buttriss has been re-signed to the Canberra Raiders for a further two seasons.
Butriss, 25, whose contact was to end at the end of this year will play with the Raiders until the end of 2013.
Raiders CEO Don Furner said Buttriss had showed the club what a tremendous player he could be and said his form in the past two seasons warranted a contract extension.
“Glen has matured as a player and is a valuable part of the NRL squad so we’re delighted to have him remain at the club for another couple of years,” Furner said.
“It’s always great when you can retain your young talent and Glen is one of these players.”
Buttriss said he was happy to have his future for the next two seasons sorted and never wanted to look elsewhere for a new deal.
“It’s just a relief to have it taken care of now and I can concentrate on my footy for the rest of the season and for the next two years as well,” Buttriss said.
“I’ve always loved playing for Canberra and to be able to stay here for another two years at the club where I started is fantastic.”
Buttriss said his long-term aim is to make the Raiders number nine jersey his own and establish himself as a mainstay in the top team.
