Papalii happy to be back
« on: April 17, 2018, 09:29:16 AM »
It was the demotion he admits he had to have, but for Canberra Raiders backrower Josh Papalii the journey back to the NRL was a short one.

The Origin and Kangaroos forward was one of two big names sent back to reserve grade by Raiders coach Ricky Stuart in the wake of their winless month to start the season.

Papalii's axing was another bump in the road after his poor showing at last year's World Cup and his battle to be fit during the preseason.
