Jordan Rapana was one of the surprise packets of the 2016 season, finishing the year equal top try-scorer and breaking the Raiders record for most tries in a season. 

Rapana's blistering form on the wing earned him a maiden call-up to New Zealand's team for the Four Nations, and he didn't disappoint, scoring three tries in four matches. 

His splendid form was rewarded at the end of the season, winning New Zealand's Rookie of the Year and taking home the Raiders coaches award alongside his partner in crime, Joey Leilua. 

Dubbed 'Leipana', Rapana and Leilua formed a damaging partnership on the Raiders right-edge in 2016. 

The duo created memorable highlights every weekend, including a six-try effort against the Wests Tigers in Round 8. 

Currently one of the best wingers in the NRL, Rapana will be a key figure in the Raiders attack in 2017.
