    If we’re looking for more backs Jamayne Isaako wouldn’t be too bad.

    From NRL.com

    Canberra have landed a big man double whammy with the signing of English prop Ryan Sutton set to be complemented by the retention of Queensland enforcer Josh Papalii.

    The Raiders have hit back in the scramble for marquee front-rowers, luring Sutton from Wigan on a two-year deal from next season.

    The club had money to spend and a 240kg void to fill up front with Junior Paulo returning to Parramatta and Shannon Boyd moving to the Gold Coast in 2019.

    A new three-year deal for Papalii, which will keep the Logan junior in the nation's capital until the end of 2021, is expected to be announced in the next week.

    Apparently he played for 2 seasons with no ACL after a knee reco failed. I wonder how he is going to be for his future with that knee.

    Always admired Wallace for his toughness and ability to overcome obstacles, couldn't understand why Penrith let him go originally then why Broncos let him go, was a good half back and now hooker who never let the team down

    First time I saw Aku was an SG Ball trial game. The year before we had a South African winger named Morgan McGuire and I thought "that McGuire kid has had a growth spurt" and then someone kicked ahead and Aku took off and beat everyone by miles to the ball, and I thought, "that's not McGuire, but whoever it is is going to play firstgrade". He was faster as an 80kg 17 year old than he ever was in firstgrade. I've still never seen a junior move like him.
