This week we catch up with former cult hero, Albert ‘The Prince’ Fulivai who scored 22 tries for the club during his stint at the club between 1993 - 1998.
Canberra Raider #154
What do you do for work now?
I work in the public service for the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities.
What is your favourite memory as a Raider?
The lead up to the 1994 Grand Final, winning it and then the celebrations afterwards.
What did it mean to you to wear the Raiders jersey?
It was a privilege and honour, especially around that era with the group of guys I played with.
Who was your favourite teammate?
Oh man, that is a hard one! I couldn’t say because there was a bunch of guys there that everyone got on really well with. I couldn’t pick a single person.
Do you keep in touch with any of your former teammates?
I’ve seen Kenny Nagas and Jason Croker around now and then. I see Brett Hetherington around too because my wife and the kids usually go up to Newcastle at the start of the new year.
What was your funniest moment as a Raider?
There was a fair few because of the jokes and stuffing around we used to do at training and after training. I remember we used to have this thing before training at Seiffert Oval where the guys used to get up and share stupid awards. That was pretty funny.
Do you have any advice for younger players?
Put your head down and make sure you stay grounded. Knuckle down, do the work and you’ll get the benefits for it.
