Sutton begins training with Canberra

Even though the season has only just finished for some international players, the season is already well underway for others.

Many clubs are already entering their second week of pre-season training but today saw Ryan Sutton train for the first time with Canberra Raiders in Australia’s capital.

Sutton has joined the Raiders from Wigan on a two-year deal. He will be followed to Canberra by John Bateman after Christmas after Ricky Stuart told the back-rower to spend the holiday season in the UK before heading down under after the New Zealand Test series.

Sutton heads for the NRL with over 100 appearances for the Cherry and Whites since his debut in 2014.
