Leilua re-signs with Raiders until 2018

Canberra have re-signed powerful centre Joseph Leilua until the end of the 2018 NRL season.

Leilua, who was off-contract at the end of the 2015 season, joined the Raiders in June from Newcastle and scored one try in six matches for the club.

The 23-year-old, who debuted at age 18 for the Roosters, is a dangerous ball-runner when at his forceful best and crossed for 24 tries in his first two years with the Knights.

However his performances fell away after the departure of coach Wayne Bennett, and he was released with 18 months left on his contract at Newcastle.

The 119-game NRL veteran has also played eight Test matches for Samoa.
