Canberra may have lost a couple of marquee men but fullback Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad believes their premiership window remains firmly open.

The departures of John Bateman, who has returned home to England to play for Wigan, and Bulldogs recruit Nick Cotric have depleted the Raiders of two strike weapons heading into season 2021.

However, after bowing out in a preliminary final against eventual premiers Melbourne last year, Nicoll-Klokstad is confident Canberra are still capable of going all the way.

"We've had that little period to prepare for [Bateman and Cotric's exits]. The players that are coming in to take over those two great players, they're great players in themselves as well," he said.

"Whether they be cemented NRL players or they haven't really had a shot at it yet. We've got a really good system at the moment where we've got really great young kids coming through.
