Paulo: I'm loving Canberra

Junior Paulo is loving life down in the nation's capital as the Raiders prop speaks to the media ahead of the green machine's clash against the Rabbitohs.

"I've been looking at securing a few more years down in Canberra, ill let my manager deal with it all and it's in the process but I'm really happy with the club and they are happy with me," Paulo said.

"I'm really enjoying my time down here and hopefully I can stay longer."

Paulo was also full of praise for teammate Jeff Lima after the experienced forward was named in the side on Tuesday.

"Jeff brings a lot of experience and what he does for the boys when he's not in the team is massive for us."

"Everyone at the club loves Jeff, he's been putting in quality performances for Mounties in NSW Cup so it's great to have him back in there."
