    The Raiders are set to sign one of the fastest junior rugby league players in the country.Source: FOX SPORTS Canberra are on the verge of snatching one of the fastest young talents in rugby league from the Roosters.

    Xavier Savage — a former Queensland sprint champion — is believed to be joining the Raiders on a lengthy deal in the coming days.
    The 17-year-old electric winger is one of the brightest young talents in the game and it’s understood Canberra have fought off a number of rival clubs to capture the youngster’s signature.

    Savage recorded a time of 10.95 in the 100m as he won the Queensland Junior Athletics Championship in 2018, and also lifted titles in the 200m and long jump.

    A promising union player at Brisbane Boys College, Savage joined the Roosters’ SG Ball side last year.

    A Queensland State of Origin representative on the wing in last season’s under-16 tournament, Savage has received an offer for a two-and-a-half-year deal with the Green Machine.

    His signature would be a huge coup for the Raiders, who are well-known as one of the best development clubs in the NRL.

    Rooster have too many good players. Some promising talents unfortunately have to go. Good luck to him

        Poor bugger is gone for the season. Can’t wait to see him going around next year. Not sure where he will fit in with CNK back in the side tho. My money is that he will end up elsewhere or play out of position and have his talents wasted in the short term.
