It's not easy coming back from an ACL injury and making a full recovery, Dunamis Lui did just that in 2018.

The Raiders prop not only made a full recovery from an ACL tear in 2017 but also managed to play in every game for the Raiders in 2018.

Lui showed his class on the field starting in the side on multiple occasions.

His early form saw him called up to the Samoan side for their Pacific Test match against Tonga mid-way through the season.

Lui re-signed with the green machine until the end of 2021 and will play a key role in the Raiders' forward pack for the 2019 season after the departures of Boyd and Paulo.
