The league’s most exciting backline isn’t breaking up any time soon.
The Raiders, who had their entire first-choice backline under contract for 2018 already, have now started with extensions, announcing that they’ve re-signed fullback Jack Wighton until the end of 2020.
A Raiders junior, Wighton played in every spot in the backs for the Raiders before settling into the fullback role. His versatility has had his name thrown up as a potential Origin player on the wing.
Wighton has made 104 appearances for the Raiders since making his debut in 2012.
