Canberra Raiders hooker Glen Buttriss has signed a new two year deal with the Raiders, with the Cootamundra junior remaining at the club until the end of 2015.
Buttriss has been at the Raiders for over a decade, coming through the Raiders junior ranks and said it’s great the club had showed faith in him.
“It’s very exciting to stay at the Raiders, I’ve been here for 11 years now and I’m pretty pumped up to be here for another two years,” Buttriss said. “I’ve only played a couple of games this year because I’ve had a few injury setbacks, but I’m happy they’ve shown some faith in me and I can repay them by having a good back end of the season.”
Raiders CEO Don Furner said Buttriss had shown the Coaching staff that he was a valuable part of the team and despite a few injuries this season he expected him to be at his best soon.
“Glen has been with us since he was a junior and he has developed into an NRL quality hooker who is a strong part of the team,” Furner said. “He’s had a tough few months with injury but we’re confident he can be back on the field soon helping the team achieve their goals this season and for the next two.”
