They could all take it out, but I’d say Papa has the edge slightly over Bateman.

Great final 4

It’s nice to see Michael Innes is now part of the Raiders family. Who would have thought 3 years ago! Never say never!

Dunamis Lui is apparently a good trainer and clubman and seems popular amongst the playing group. Returned from his ACL a better player and it’s a well deserved award.

Very pleased with all these winners so far. And a big yes for Lui. He's been incredible.

Papalii’s 3rd Meninga medal in 4 years. He really is the cornerstone of the pack... or a rolling boulder

Once we win the premiership and he wins the Clive Churchill medal, he will go down as one of the greats. Congrats Papa!

Big hugs from me Papa..

And congrats to CHuNK, Jack and HSM on fantastic years.

And..thanks to Ricky and the entire squad for the constant wood in 2019.

Josh Papalii dedicates third Meninga Medal to teammates

Canberra prop Josh Papalii has cemented his legacy as one of the modern greats of the club after winning his third Meninga Medal in four years to help spearhead the Raiders' charge into the preliminary final.

"It's just a shame that one person gets recognised for a good season. I truly believe there are 30 blokes out there, we sacrifice a lot hours and days to this (club) and to try and capture a premiership.

Well deserved to Papa on taking out the big one. Champion.

Very happy for HorsPOWER as well. Combined the raw aggression with the ability to learn from his rookie mistakes. I can't wait to watch him again next week. He is a must in our 2019 forward rotation.
