Season Highlights: Jordan Rapana

Jordan Rapana burst into the Raiders starting team in 2015, showing consistency and his trademark damaging runs that were rewarded with 19 matches. Rapana is a talented and enthusiastic ball runner who is blessed with great speed and an ability to find the try line.  

Having returned to the Raiders following a five year exile with a Mormon mission, Rapana briefly flirted with Rugby Union before joining the Raiders in 2014. Only playing 2 games in 2014, Rapana showed the benefits of a strong pre-season in his 2015 performance.

Rapana had a team high 65 tackle breaks in 2015, whilst also ranking very high in line breaks and offloads. Rapana spent the majority of the season on the wing and put in one of his season best performances against Penrith in round 20, with two tries. 

Rapana looks set to become a pivotal player for the Raiders in 2016, with his contract keeping him at the Raiders until the end of 2017.
