Josh Papalii couldn't hide his excitement about returning to the Raiders lineup after serving a two game suspension.

The Queensland State of Origin Representative was suspended for two weeks during the Raiders golden point victory over the Dragons in round 19.

"I cant wait, I'm obviously really exited to run out again with the boys, they have played really well for the past couple of weeks so I have to give full credit to them," Papalii said.

"Joe Tapine has been electric for us lately and I'm hoping that he can get another run for us in the second row."

Papalii admits that his two game suspension has helped him recover after a gruelling State of Origin campaign with the Queensland Maroons.

"I was a bit sore coming back from State of Origin so I feel more refreshed coming back from my two game suspension."
