The Canberra Raiders will open talks to keep Jordan Rapana in lime green for an eighth season. Rapana showed his utility value again when he deputised at fullback for Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad (finger), who could return this week to face the ladder-leading Panthers at Penrith on Saturday. They could also welcome back Michael Oldfield (hamstring), but young winger Semi Valemei was unable to finish the 14-12 win over the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville on Saturday. He had a knee infection going into the game and came off in the 49th minute, but it's not thought to be too serious. Raiders behemoth Josh Papalii was cleared by the match review committee after he was put on report for accidentally elbowing Cowboys fullback Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow in the back of the head.
