Put Raiders revival down to Sticky: Josh PapaliiJune 29, 2016
If you think NRL dark horses one of the first teams to spring to mind is the Canberra Raiders.
Star forward Josh Papalii says a grand final isn’t out of the question.
“There’s something special building here,” club veteran Josh Papalii said.
“I think the boys really believe something’s building for maybe finals footy or hopefully a grand final down the track.
“But we’ve got to obviously take it week by week; we’re still trying to be consistent.”
Papalii also praised coach and Raiders legend Ricky Stuart who has been instrumental in Canberra’s revival.
“As a former player for the Green Machine he’s obviously very passionate about this club – you can sense it in videos where he talks about the green jersey and how much pride we need to take in it.
“He’s won three premierships and played in a few grand finals, so hopefully we can repeat that era.”
