Edrick Lee enjoyed a year full of representative selections and recognitions at a junior level, however 2012 will be most remembered as the year that the long striding outside back made his debut in the top grade.

Read About a Raider – Edrick Lee

Melissa Hewitt: Eddie I absolutely love your hair style! Can you tell me the inspiration behind it? Is it based on Will Smith in the Fresh Prince of Bel Air?

Edrick: Hi Melissa, thanks for your feedback I’m glad that you’re loving the new hair style!

The inspiration behind the flat top hair style is most definitely based on Will Smith’s hair style when he was on the Fresh Prince of Bel Air.

I’m trying to bring that old school look back into the present and I guess its working.

Fresh Prince helps kings of comeback do it again

EDRICK LEE'S been dubbed the 'Fresh Prince of Bel Air' by his Canberra teammates, but his flashy flat-top isn't the only reason.

With the Raiders trailing 16-14, an airborne Lee plucked a bomb from returning champion Terry Campese out of the sky to score a spectacular late try which sealed a 20-16 win over the Warriors.

It was undoubtedly Campese's night, the five-eighth back in his beloved green jumper after a year out with a knee injury.

Having played just eight games in two years, Campese washed away his frustration with a controlling performance at Canberra Stadium, having come off the bench after 30 minutes.

Topic: Raiders' Lee noticing extra attention

Flying Canberra winger Edrick Lee says he's noticed opposition NRL players have started blocking his run while zeroing in on the high ball.

And with good reason.

The 1.97m former Brisbane Bullets development squad member in the NBL has bagged several four-pointers from kicks to his wing this year, the most recent being his second try against Manly in round 11.

"I've noticed over the past few weeks that there are teams that are blocking me. At training that's one thing I'm working on under the high ball," he said.

"I guess it's just having that awareness of them blocking you. For me that does come natural. The more and more I practice, the better I get at it and the opportunities will come."

The 20-year-old is backing up his stellar debut season in 2012 where he scored six tries in seven matches.

His reliability in the air as well as in finishing off backline moves has resulted in him once again being named on the wing for the Raiders' Monday night NRL clash against Brisbane at Canberra Stadium.

While for now he's just aiming to play consistently well to hold down that starting spot, he has dreams of earning a Maroons State of Origin jersey.

"At the start of pre-season I got selected in the emerging Queensland squad," he said.

"That was a real eye opener just to be a part of it. Later down the track I have set a goal to be there."

And he isn't shy of the physicality Origin football imposes either, taking no issue with Paul Gallen's dust up on Nate Myles on Wednesday night.

"As a big fan of the State of Origin I guess that's one thing I was looking forward to and for that to occur, it just really got me hyped up," he said.

"I'm sure at the time the whole crowd would have got behind it."

Leaping Lee looking for consistency

He’s fast becoming one of Raiders fans crowd favourites, but Edrick Lee says he’s still got a long way to go before he feels like he’s a permanent part of the NRL team each week.

Lee’s impressive form has seen him edge out Sandor Earl from one of the Raiders wing positions, with his ability under the high ball making him a dangerous attacking weapon out wide for the Green Machine.

The Queensland native says he’s looking to keep improving with each performance at NRL level and is no way taking his time in the team for granted, as he knows a poor performance will see him drop out of the team.

“The one thing I’m looking to do with my game is be more consistent,” Lee said. “There’s heaps of competition for spots in the team and I’m looking to put in a strong performance and keep my spot on the wing.”

Canberra's Lee played on with broken arm

Canberra youngster Edrick Lee has been praised for his toughness after playing on with a broken arm during Monday night's NRL thrashing of Brisbane.

Lee's worst fears were confirmed on Wednesday, with X-rays revealing a fracture in his right arm which is likely to sideline the exciting winger for three months.

Lee, who has scored seven tries from ten games this year, suffered the injury with 15 minutes remaining in the second half of the 30-18 victory.

But he bravely battled on, earning the respect of seasoned teammates who were unaware of his efforts.

"Pretty courageous effort to keep playing a game of footy with a broken arm," halfback Josh McCrone said on Wednesday.

"... I was on the bench when they were checking it all out so I knew he had a bit of an issue there but I'm a bit surprised it was that bad."

Tough young utility back Jack Wighton was similarly in awe.

"He's definitely a tough person. He didn't even let it on," he said.

Lee, who will have surgery on Thursday, said he was shattered by the injury.

"As soon as it occurred, I thought it was just a normal knock to the arm," he told RaidersTV.

"I didn't really think it was a broken arm (so) I just played on. I didn't think of it too much.

"At the end, when all the adrenaline stopped, that's when it became sore.

"... to get this injury mid-way through the season, I am shattered."

The predicted recovery time for Lee is 12 weeks, but he hasn't given up hope of returning later in the season to help the Raiders' finals push.

"The doctor says to take it week by week," he said.

"They say the minimum is 12 weeks and we'll go on from there."

The injury will give Sandor Earl an opportunity to return to first grade, after he'd been squeezed out following the emergence of Lee and Wighton and the return of centre Jarrod Croker from injury.

Earl will leave the Raiders at season's end to link with French rugby side Pau.

2013 Player Review: Edrick Lee

Despite having his season restricted by a broken arm, Edrick Lee, the ‘Fresh Prince of Belconnen’, performed so well in his nine appearances that he polled in the top five for Player of the Year at the Meninga Medal and confirmed to all and sundry that he is one of the brightest young talents in the game.

Lee emerged as a potential superstar after making his debut last year when he scored six tries in his seven appearances, many of which were scintillating long range efforts.

The 21 year old displayed no such signs of second year syndrome in 2013, with the long striding outside back again notching a variety of memorable tries.

In total, Lee scored seven tries in his nine appearances this year however none were more spectacular and influential than his match-winning effort against the New Zealand Warriors in round six at Canberra Stadium.

Lee’s aerial ability, honed through his prowess as a talented basketball player as a junior, is second to none and he displayed all of this talent against the Warriors by latching onto a Terry Campese cross-field kick to score the match winner in the 74th minute, much to the adoration of the Canberra faithful.

Edrick Lee Re-Signs until the end of 2017

The Canberra Raiders have had a huge boost on the eve of the 2014 pre-season, with excitement machine Edrick Lee re-signing with the club until the end of the 2017 season.
 
Lee, 21, was already contracted with the Raiders until the end of 2014, however he’s been given an extension on his current deal making him the first Raider to commit to the club for the 2017 season.
 
An excited Lee said he’s thrilled to remain with the Raiders on a long term deal and said he’s excited about the future of the club under new Coach Ricky Stuart.
 
“It’s fantastic to have my long term future secured at the club where I made my debut and who I love playing for,” Edrick Lee said. “I can’t wait to get back into pre-season training in a couple of weeks’ time and work with Ricky Stuart.
 
“It’s going to be a hard pre-season but I’m keen to get it started and try and cement a place in the Raiders NRL team.”
 
Lee has a remarkable strike rate scoring tries in his short NRL career with 13 tries in just 16 appearances in the top grade including a hat trick and three doubles. He was a pivotal part of the Raiders backline last season before a broken arm in round 13 ruled him out for the remainder of the year.
 
He has also represented Queensland at under 20’s level (2012) scoring two tries in a dominant performance.
 
Raiders CEO Don Furner said the Raiders were delighted to have Edrick stay with the team for the long term and said the club was working hard to secure a host of their young stars long term.
 
“Edrick is a wonderful talent who has shown he is a star in the making and we’re very happy to see him remain loyal to the club where he started and sign a long term deal with the Raiders,” Furner said. “We’re working hard on securing our young talent on long term deals and Edrick is one of the first to commit to the club which is fantastic news for our members.”
