FORMER Milton-Ulladulla Bulldog Jack Murchie has started training with the Canberra Raiders first grade squad, ahead of the 2018 season.

2017 National Youth Competition star Jack Murchie, who also spent a season with Gerringong, has been added to their full-time squad, along with new signings Sam Williams (Wakefield Trinity), Charlie Gubb (New Zealand Warriors) and Brad Abbey (Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs).
