The Raiders have signed the nephew of club legend Brett Mullins for next season.

James Schiller, a promising 20-year-old, plays wing, center and full-back — just as his famous uncle did for Canberra two decades ago.

The youngster, originally from the NSW village of Young, played for the Dragons in the abbreviated NSW Cup this year, scoring three attempts in four matches.

He has signed a two-year deal with the Raiders and is expected to push for a top-rated side after an off-season training session with the NRL squad.

The Mullins family is one of the most famous in the rugby league.

Brett’s father Bill was one of the game’s best wingers in the 1970s, scoring over 100 attempts for the Roosters, while Brett’s uncles Terry and Russell also played first class for the Western Suburbs.

Bill and Brett became the first father-son combination in league history to score 100 first-class attempts, each winning two premierships.

Brett’s brother-in-law Brett Hetherington also played for the Raiders and his son Jack is currently a member of the Bulldogs’ top grade side.
