Hope so. He's an International forward. That's what they cost.

God I hope this is true..

Papa is a beast.

I was peeved a few years ago when he signed with Parra.

Then ecstatic when he back flipped..

So much for all those Facebook "reports" saying he's already signed with Souths... and getting cold feet! Seems the Rabbitohs dropped out some time ago, according to Brent Read.

Son, we live in a world that has forums, and those forums have to be guarded by Mods. Who's gonna do it? You? You, Nickman? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Lucy, and you curse GE. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know -- that GE’s moderation, while tragic, probably saved lives; and my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, keeps threads on track and under the appropriately sized, highlighted green headings.
You want moderation because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that forum -- you need me on that forum. We use words like "stay on topic," "use the appropriate forum," "please delete." We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punch line. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very moderation that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather that you just said "thank you" and went on your way. Otherwise, I suggest you get a green handle and edit a post. Either way, I don't give a DAMN what you think about moderation.

Papalii was my No. 1 priority. I suspect it is going to be a waiting game between Paulo and Boyd... lose one, bit of a top up for the other.

Fantastic news.

Although with our current roster situation he might have to play halfback next year.

Some people on our Facebook page saying $2 million is too much for a player who was dropped to reserves a few weeks ago. The thing is, it could be $1.8... $600-650k a season for Papalii, who has proven himself at Origin and Kangaroos level... and was the best second rower in the NRL in 2016... that's fair. At his best and when fit, he's great and he can put in more minutes than Boyd and Paulo.

If we went by what some people on our facebook said we should still be working a 2005 $4Million salary cap..

Papalli has signed a 40 year $160million contract with the Raiders which should see him become a one club player for life.
