Canberra rugby league fans rejoice: Shaun Fensom is returning to the capital. The former Green Machine cult hero will link up with the Belconnen United Sharks in the Canberra Raiders Cup next season. Fensom brought down the curtain on his 176-game NRL career after a one-year stint with the Brisbane Broncos this past season. He played 139 games in lime green and reached a grand final during a two-year run with the North Queensland Cowboys. The 31-year-old workhorse will be a huge boost for the Sharks in their bid to break a finals drought - because they simply don't come any tougher than this Camden export.

The Tongan international played his role with distinction during the season as he played all but two regular season matches for the Green Machine.

Whether playing at hooker or at lock, Hiavili provided plenty of energy from the bench as he averaged 57.6 running metres despite limited minutes.

After starting the season from the bench, Havili came to the fore midway through the Round 11 match against the North Queensland Cowboys as Josh Hodgson succumbed to a thumb injury.

Alan Tongue walked into the change room for his NRL debut and had to pinch himself. The little tackling machine from Tamworth was about to play alongside Laurie Daley, Brett Mullins, David Furner and Jason Croker in his first game for the Canberra Raiders. He was about to run on to the field to play against a stacked Brisbane Broncos side, boasting the likes of Shane Webcke, Wendell Sailor, Lote Tuqiri, Darren Lockyer, Kevin Walters and Gorden Tallis. That moment in 2000 paints the perfect picture of Tongue's career, because while he was never the biggest or the best, he belonged next to rugby league's biggest names. "You know and every [rugby league] fan knows, I wasn't the most gifted rugby league player to lace on a boot," Tongue said.

Canberra co-captain Jarrod Croker has his sights set on a contract extension and sustained period of finals success as he targets the 300-game milestone as a one-club man.

The 29-year-old centre has played 257 first-grade games for the club and will be well on track to overtake Jason Croker's record of 318 games for Canberra if he can secure a multiple-year extension.

Elliott Whitehead says the Great Britain Lions have let themselves down. But he's hoping a rugby league-mad Papua New Guinea gives them a boost ahead of their final game. The Canberra Raiders second-rower is in Port Moresby for the Lions final Test of the year - against the Kumuls on Saturday. So far it's been a winless tour for Great Britain, who had high hopes after England made the final of the World Cup in 2017. But they've lost to Tonga and both their Tests against New Zealand.

England has been such a happy hunting ground the Canberra Raiders will now look to develop generation next. They've gone into partnership with English Super League club Huddersfield to bring a couple of under-20s players out every year to find the next Josh Hodgson and Elliott Whitehead.
