Edwards arrived in Canberra at the start of the 2013 season and has been in great form for the Raiders this year, with his re-signing giving the Green Machine another key signature as they look to build for the future.
Edwards said he never considered looking for any other club and said he’s made a home here in Canberra with the Raiders.
“It’s an honour to be part of such a proud club and I look forward to another three years here playing for a team who I know is on the up,” Edwards said. “It’s hard being away from family and friends but I’ve made a home here in Canberra and the club has become a family for me.
“I feel my game is improving each week and under Ricky Stuart I think I can develop it further and become a better player.”
Raiders CEO Don Furner said having Edwards at the club for three more years was a huge positive and said he looked forward to seeing him develop as a player in the future.
“Joel is a fantastic re-signing for us as he is one of the hardest workers both on and off the field here at the Raiders,” Furner said. “He’s another player we see as a key part of our success moving forward and we’re thrilled he is remaining with the club for a further three seasons.”
