One of the older heads in the Raiders forward pack, 2015 Meninga Medal winner Sia Soliola is a true professional that leads from example. 

A broken arm halted Soliola early in 2016, but he returned midway through the season and played a huge role in the Raiders excellent form. 

Soliola's leadership amongst a young group of forwards will be extremely valuable in 2017, as will the excellent work he does in the community away from the football field. This community work saw Soliola selected as a finalist for the Ken Stephen medal in 2016. 

Off the field, Soliola's family grew a little bit larger in 2016, with the addition of son Alesana.
