    Former NRL star Michael Ennis joins Canberra Raiders coaching staff

    He once earned the ire of the Canberra faithful after a post-game Viking clap celebration in 2016.

    Now, Michael Ennis will be working with the Raiders in a bid to develop their stars and take them to another level.

    The former Cronulla premiership winner has signed on with the Green Machine as a coaching consultant which will involve attending weekly training sessions and working alongside Raiders coach Ricky Stuart.

    I’ve always stayed in touch with ‘Sticky’ (Stuart), he coached me a number of years ago,” Ennis told the Raiders website.

    “I’ve always loved his passion for the game and we’ve stayed in touch and talk footy.

    “He approached me about coming down here and doing some work and it was the right fit.

    “I like the potential in the squad — (Josh) Hodgson’s a terrific player so to work with him will be a good experience. (Siliva) Havili there played terrific last year as well, and a forward pack that’s had a number of changes to it. It’ll be nice to see them evolve without Shannon Boyd and Junior Paulo.”

    Raiders fans still won’t have forgotten the sight of Ennis mimicking the Viking clap after the Sharks beat their team in qualifying final in 2016 — a victory that propelled the black, white and blue to their history-making title win.

    Ennis said he hoped to turn the Raiders’ fortunes around after just one finals appearance since 2013.

    “I’ve always enjoyed the passion of the Raiders fans,” Ennis said.

    “That night, I’ve never seen GIO Stadium like it. It was a pretty special night for us.

    “It was one of the hardest matches in my career which proved to be vital … the carry-on afterwards probably not so good now!

    “Hopefully I can help bring some enjoyment to Raiders fans this year.”

    Yup!! Should have grabbed him for a role at our club.. in fact should have kept him instead of letting him go to the sharks.

    What’s done is done but he was great as a bulldog and should have remained. Never mind .. onto the next chapter,bigger an better things are ahead for the doggies !!

    Ennis: so mouth off and run and hide behind your own players because the ref can't do anything.

    Canberra player: but what if he comes at me?

    Ennis: run faster?

    Shows how much of a hypocrite Ricky is.

    Didn’t he say he disrespected the crowd or something?

    It makes no sense that he wasn’t asked to assist at Canterbury in some capacity. Painful stuff and a real opportunity missed.

    He loves the club and would’ve happily returned.

    Every time he's commentated a game we've been in he's got a hard on whenever we are losing.

    He hates us.

    The journeyman is going to ruin Hodgson's game.

    Hodgson shits all over him in every aspect of his game.

    Hope this means we see less of his head on Foxsports...

    At this rate in a few years time Ennis will have been involved in every nrl club! Can't respect someone that hops from club to club as much as this goose

    You sound like a jilted lover. Ennis might be verbose but he is tactically very shrewd.

    The Kennel logic when a player leaves the Dogs at becomes involved in another club - He is a fucking shit cunt who was overrated and is an idiot who has no clue

    If they are giving him $$ why should he not. No one has to stay loyal to one job, people should always look out for the best interests not someone else's especially if it's in the sporting world and its a fan

    Come on man. Des was a fan of his number 9's just tackling that was fucked Ennis. He clearly showed why he is a great 9 when he was at the Sharks.

    Despite the limitations Des put on him, he learned to manage the game beautifully for us from dummy-half and his absence from the GF team ruined our chances. He was then the best 9 in the comp at Cronulla and without his brains they don’t win in ’16.

    The bloke obviously doesn’t hate the club — he spent 6 years here, half of them as captain, was passionate about the club’s values and didn’t want to leave. His job is to be a critic and he’s entitled to be critical about Canterbury.

    Look I agree but to a extent.
    This bloke has been through a tonne of employers since he came into the nrl.
    Dragons, knights, Broncos, dogs, sharks, fox, and now raiders.
    By 2021 he should be involved with another 2 clubs
