Orford Set To Commence Training With Raiders

The Canberra Raiders will welcome former Dally M winning halfback Matt Orford to training this week, after he agreed to join the club for the 2011 season, subject to the final completion of his release from English Super League Club Bradford.

Orford will commence training with the club Wednesday and is hopeful of officially becoming a Raider within the next few days, after his management finalises his terms of release from Bradford.

Orford said he's looking forward to the challenge of returning to the NRL and the Raiders and said the prospect of playing with an exciting young team was one he was eager to be a part of.
