Biography:

Since making his NRL in 2011, Josh Papalii has firmly established himself as one of the premier second rowers in the competition.

Noted for his damaging runs, Papalii has played almost 150 games for the Raiders and has represented both Queensland and Australia regularly since 2013.

Despite playing all three games for Queensland last year, Papalii missed out on Australian selection for the World Cup and chose to represent Samoa instead.

In 2016, Papalii was awarded with the Meninga Medal as the club’s Player of the Year alongside Josh Hodgson.

A move to lock saw Papalii go from strength to strength in 2018 as he won his second Meninga Medal in three years.
