Josh Papalii's footwork and speed to set up the Raiders first try on the weekend is an easy choice for the Denman Prospect Play of the Week.

The play started with Blake Austin picking up a loose Jordan Rapana offload. After Austin handed the ball off to Papalii, it appeared a standard hit-up was about to occur. 

Showing off brilliant footwork for his size, Papalii ripped off a wicked right-foot step and fended Michael Morgan away to find clear space. 

Papalii then drew in Cowboys fullback Lachlan Coote perfectly, before passing to Zac Santo who was able to streak away for his first NRL try.
