Former Huddersfield Giants star finally confirms his new club as he replaces ex-Hull KR man

The Canberra Raiders have confirmed the signing of Danny Levi for the next two seasons today.

The Samoan international will join the Raiders on a two-year deal for the 2023 and 2024 seasons.

The 25-year-old hooker has played 112 NRL matches for Newcastle Knights, Manly Sea Eagles and Brisbane Broncos, along with 20 matches for Huddersfield Giants in the Super League last year as he helped the club to the play-offs.

Raiders CEO Don Furner said Levi’s addition to the squad provides the club with an experienced player in an important position.

“We’re really pleased to secure Danny Levi for the next two seasons, with his experience and skill at hooker providing us with another quality player in that position in the NRL squad.”

He replaces former Hull FC and Hull KR hooker and England international Josh Hodgson who leaves the Raiders after years as their number nine.

He joins Parramatta Eels for the 2023 season as Levi joins England international Elliot Whitehead in the Australian capital.

Levi was one of the best number nines in Super League last season and was unlucky to miss out on the Super League Dream Team to legend James Roby.

Unfortunately his Super League career ended with injury as the Giants were knocked out of the play-offs in the opening week.

He also missed the World Cup Final as he returned to Australia for personal reasons.
