I got no problem with Punish. This deal just continues to confirm he’s the most ill informed member with the worst contacts in the game.

This is business as usual, every good movie needs a bad guy.

I'm happy with this. Papa has earned the 4 year deal. He has generally been pretty consistently great, and I love that he wants to stick around.

Anyone got any hot sources on who's signing next?
Also, who is the next person that "has signed but hasn't" that we need to direct our collective depression at?
dynamic lui?
Ah indeed!
Someone get a manager / pen / remove the cat and mouse. Joke club and so forth.

Also here is some sauce: Fenno is missing canberra. Could be back as a 2nd bench forward for a Lima-ish stint. Discuss.

Great news. But is anyone wondering for what cost? We have a decorated history of poor cap management (how does Don still have his job) 😂

Half our problem is spending big money on non key positions. Hope a war chest is being prepared to throw at free agent marquee halves to replace Austin and Sezer over the next season or two. While they’re competent, they’re not elite. And we haven’t had an elite half since 94. I’m no genius but that doesn’t sound like just a coincidence to me. Only have to look at the current ladder and the halves that the top of the comp has and their associated kicking games to understand the importance of them.

I'd argue Lock is a key position. Especially for us considering how awful the rest of our middle is looking.

I would say we paid huge money to keep him, he really had all the leverage thanks to Boyd and Junior leaving.

Papa is an Origin player, and borderline Australian international. He is big, strong, has a great motor, can tackle, and meter eat. He is worth every penny.

We didn't budge on Paulo and Boyd and to me we kept the right middle forward (the one that actually has rep experience and can string consistently high performances together). Without knowing the exact figure, I'm not worried they spent too much. If it came out we spent a silly figure like a mill a year I'd be extremely surprised. Every team has an elite middle player and we are banking on Papalii being ours for the next 4 years.

If we can't afford a good half I think the money needs to trickle in from an edge rather than Papa.

The major difference and reason why you would pay more for Papalii is the minutes he plays. Whilst Boyd was often churning out 35( I thought he was capable of a lot more) and Paulo 45ish, Papalii and correct me if I’m wrong has played the full 80 at lock a couple of times since returning from Mounties?

At the very least you will get 60 quality minutes from him in the middle.

Yep he's played either 80 or the low 70s a number of times. Minutes are certainly a big plus when you look at the re-signing.

I heard Paps went into a restaurant and ate everything in the restaurant and they had to close the restaurant. Still, since the restaurant closed he's gotten back to his best and I look forward to him closing many restaurants in the next 4 years.

Josh Papalii re-signs with the Canberra Raiders

The Canberra Raiders have secured the prized signature of star forward Josh Papalii with the State of Origin enforcer signing a four-year contract extension.

Papalii's retention comes after halfback Aidan Sezer agreed to terms for a two-year contract extension, with the playmaker set to put pen to paper in the coming days. Deputy hooker Siliva Havili and prop Dunamis Lui are close to signing two-year contract extensions in a boost to Canberra's depth, while Sia Soliola is edging closer to a new deal.

Family big factor in Papalii re-signing at Raiders

Canberra Raiders backrower Josh Papalii said securing his playing future on the field and his family's off it were the big reasons why he put pen to paper on a new four-year deal to stay in the nation's capital until 2022.

"Security was the biggest key behind my contract but like I said from the start of my career, once a Canberra Raider always a Raider," Papalii said. "So, I'm happy to sign again for four years and keep the green jersey on my back. That will be me to 30 and hopefully I'll still be getting better as age goes on, but in saying that it's a long time away and I'm still concentrating on this season."

Also here is some sauce: Fenno is missing canberra. Could be back as a 2nd bench forward for a Lima-ish stint. Discuss.
I figure you're probably joking, but...do that deal. Love Fenno.

I nearly squeaked out of my chair at work today when the email landed in my inbox and said four years. I don't care what we're paying him; he's worth every cent.

I'm not joking on the Fenno missing Canberra. Cowboys fan who regularly beers with Fenno after home games mentioned it, and that's more solid than anything the mole or lucy has ever come up with.

Like anyone, at the right price, Fenno is fine

the trouble was Fensom when he left was being paid like a SOO rep, rather than a high work rate, low impact bench middle he was. If he's paid in line with his role, i'd have him back.
The List - K.Love, Keno, Zippy's tennis angels, LA Lakers, Noah, Boozer, Lucy's horse tips, Colts, Lucy, Kevin Proctor, Dr Zaius, TR, Tinfoil hatted Gangers & Woody, anyone in Raiders HQ who can point to QBN on a map....
