UPDATE 19/6 @3:25pm: The Raiders this morning confirmed the re-signing of Stuart until the end of 2020.
The Raiders have been somewhat disappointing this season (though not the most disappointing – that honour surely goes to the Warriors), but that hasn’t dissuaded the Raiders from looking to keep coach Ricky Stuart around long term.
According to SMH, the Raiders and Stuart have agreed to terms on a two-year extension, which will be announced this week.
Stuart has done a fantastic job remodeling the Raiders into one of the league’s most exciting side’s to watch, but now needs to add a hard-nosed defense to back it up.
After guiding the Raiders to within one game of a grand final last year, he’s earned the opportunity to try and achieve that.
Stuart has coached 350 first grade games for the Raiders, Eels, Sharks and Roosters, with a combined 49.7% win rate.
