Elliott Whitehead wants to finish career with Raiders

Raiders star Elliott Whitehead wants to retire in Canberra



Englishman Elliott Whitehead wants to call Australia home. The Raiders ultimate’ ‘Iron Man’ — who has incredibly missed just two games in five seasons — has declared he wants to retire in Canberra.

"I’d love to retire here,’’ Whitehead said. "I feel like Canberra is my home now. My partner is English and we’re happy here, we’re just waiting to get residency now and as soon as we get that we’ll be buying our first home."

If Croker and Hodgson retire before him and we don’t have an obvious young leader I’m all for a year or 2 of Whitehead captaincy before he hangs them up. I love this guy

He is a rare combination of toughness, skill, reliability and durability. If we win a premiership in the next couple of years, there is a strong argument he would be in the all time Raiders team. Has far, far, exceeded my expectations from when we first signed him.

I reckon he is already in the mix for all time raiders greats. I asked the question last year, whether he had surpassed Furner to claim one of our back row spots and no one batted an eye lid. Frankly you are arguing between a Ferrari and a Lamborghini

He’s always looked at home, whereas Bateman didn’t. You can learn a lot about people on Instagram...

GET IT DONE. Whatever we need to do. A job after retirement. Buy that house for him. He's earned the right to go out in that lime green jersey.

Now let's hope we can send him out as a premiership winning player.

I had rather hoped he'd have a year at Bradford.

Well Bateman having a daughter on the other side of the planet was always going to make things difficult.

Great news after yesterday's abomination.

Did anyone else notice that after Whitehead scored they had Sutton up on the big screen? Quickly took it down but didn't bother correcting it other than the announcer getting it right.

Let's get that Premiership!!
