Raiders enforcer Josh Papalii has inked a three-year contract extension which will keep him in lime green until at least the end of 2024. Papalii's new deal comes with an option to extend for one more season in 2025, and has doused speculation he would return to Queensland to see out the twilight of his career. The 28-year-old was already committed until the end of 2022 before Tuesday morning's announcement. It was feared Papalii could miss the rest of this season after injuring his shoulder against the Sydney Roosters, although he recovered to play a key role in Saturday's thumping win over the St George Illawarra Dragons which kept Canberra's top-four hopes alive. "I love this club and I love Canberra," Papalii said.
