Mr Consistent continued to be just that in 2019 as he produced quality performances while only missing 36 minutes of football across the season.

A rock in defence, Whitehead had the second most effective one-on-one tackles across the NRL and also made 880 tackles for the season.

While his defence was clearly a standout feature of his game, Whitehead also had the equal second highest number of try assists for the Raiders with six to his name. His diving effort to set up a try for Seb Kris against the Warriors was a particular highlight.

The AIS has treated a number of athletes because of Canberra's smoky haze that's equivalent to smoking a packet of cigarettes. AIS chief medical officer David Hughes released guidelines for athletes training in bushfire-affected regions on Thursday. It comes after Canberra's been swamped by smoke blowing in from the bushfires raging in the region. The Canberra Raiders and ACT Brumbies lead hundreds of elite athletes training in the rank air. Cricket ACT cancelled Saturday's games, Netball ACT have cancelled social competitions during the week and Canberra United canned their fan day on Friday.

Kevin Walters has made a change to Queensland's preparations for the 2020 State of Origin series, desperate to avoid a third straight defeat by naming a full-strength squad for a pre-season training camp in February. 

Walters has broken his usual trend of naming only an emerging players' camp for the summer, instead naming every Origin representative who took part in the 2019 campaign to join a host of rising hopefuls pushing for a debut next year.

The players' attitude was always going to tell Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart where they were at. And he's pleased. They've come back ready to put 2019 behind them and do the hard work again. The Green Machine are looking to go one better than making this year's NRL grand final, but have a shorter pre-season due to their deep campaign. Stuart said the early signs were good - they weren't resting on their laurels.

He came to Australia for a chance to prove himself against the best, and Ryan Sutton did just that in 2019.

After starting the first two matches of the season on the bench, the forward had a chance to start at lock when Joe Tapine was struck with injury.

Playing the next nine matches in the starting side, Sutton had a chance to display his qualities as he regularly made over 100 running metres per game, as well as showcasing his passing game.
