As sports journalists, it's not uncommon for our inboxes to be bombarded with mind-numbing sales pitches from public relations companies working on behalf of big-name brands. These emails are usually swiftly deleted before even being opened as a matter of course, but very occasionally one of these tends to pique our interest. I refer to an email which came through earlier this week announcing that women's tennis star Naomi Osaka had signed a, no doubt, financially lucrative deal with a major electronics company. The announcement comes just weeks after she announced she was stepping away from tennis to take some 'personal time'. It's been a big week for Osaka, who took another moment away from her personal time a few days ago to tweet about a recent photo shoot which landed her on a magazine cover in Japan.

Pressure makes diamonds. And Josh Papalii is hoping to be a big, shining rock in the middle of the Queensland defensive line. The Canberra Raiders enforcer will be the most experienced State of Origin combatant out there when the Maroons look to level the series against NSW at Lang Park on Sunday. They have to overcome a record defeat from the series opener, going down 50-6 in Townsville, with Queensland coach Paul Green hoping Papalii's return will help shore up their middle. Papalii knows he's carrying the hopes of his home state and he's planning for that pressure to bring out the best in him - especially since they've "only got one chance to do it".

Raiders set sights on priority signing

In a recent turn of events, the Canberra Raiders have opted to make the signing of a halfback their number one priority, which has seemingly all but ended any potential move for St George Illawarra fullback Matt Dufty for the time-being, per Fox Sports’ James Hooper.

Dufty has been closely linked to the Green Machine as a reinforcement signing to their hampered options at fullback, but the Raiders have since opted to go in a different direction.

The recent release of gun halfback George Williams has quickly turned the club’s attention to add to their halves and find a partner for star five-eighth Jack Wighton.

As a result, the Raiders could now target former St George Illawarra five-eighth Gareth Widdop as their priority signing, who is looking to make a return to the NRL.

Staring down a hostile Queensland crowd at Suncorp Stadium is no picnic but Jack Wighton is relishing the chance to face the rabid Maroons faithful after receiving his partner's backing to skip the birth of their third child and play for NSW in Origin II.

There was speculation on Thursday that Wighton would be forced to leave the Blues camp in Kingscliff near the Queensland border with his partner Monisha expecting baby No.3 "any day now".

But Wighton said he had made the tough call to remain with the Blues after organising a support network for his fiancee and their two young children, Ariah and Aaliyah.

Canberra has gone cold on the idea of signing St George Illawarra fullback Matt Dufty, according to the Canberra Times.

Dufty has been told he’s not wanted by the Dragons beyond this season and so is on the lookout for a new club.

He went to the ACT to meet with Raiders coach Ricky Stuart and tour the facilities, but the club has since gone off the idea of bringing him to the nation’s capital.

Instead, the Canberra Times says the Raiders are prioritising signing a halfback to replace exiled Englishman George Williams.
