Raiders star Josh Papalii discusses his stellar form of late, which has coincided with his return to the second-row and an increase in fitness after starting the year at prop and admittedly overweight. 

Papalii's mid-season resurgence has seen the dynamic back-rower recalled to the Queensland Origin squad and the affable 23 year old has since heavily pushed his claim for a spot in the top 17 for Game III.

Against a fearsome and sizeable Warriors pack, another powerhouse performance by Papalii will be pivotal for victory for the Green Machine.
