Canberra Raiders winger Jordan Rapana.

He's the Canberra Raiders' resident music man and the Green Machine are hoping Jordan Rapana's victory tunes will echo off the walls of ANZ Stadium on Sunday night.

Rapana is not only responsible for leading the team's victory song, but also for choosing the music that has washed over the Raiders change-room 17 times so far this year.

You can expect everything from pop to country inside the Raiders' inner sanctum and Rapana prides himself on his choice of winning melodies

"I've got a pretty handy little playlist," Rapana told

"I'd like to think I have got some pretty tunes, but there's a bit [of] old school, my 'old man' music as well.

"It's always good to sing along and have a beer to and the boys are always like 'Raps chuck your music on',"

"I even get calls in the off-season from the boys 'hey what's that song on Spotify you had during the season', they seem to love it.

"I don't mind it (country), I just like good music not particularly in one genre, blues, anything.

"I lie, I won't listen to classical or anything like that, but rock, hip-hop, whatever my mood is."

As for what will be coursing through his headphones as he arrives at ANZ Stadium ahead of the biggest game of his life, "slow jams" of course.

Rapana's work behind the scenes with the morale of the team has been vital this long and injury plagued season for the Raiders.

Small events like Elliott Whitehead's 30th birthday took on new meaning as Rapana looked to turn it into an event the whole club could get on board with following the much-publicised theft of his motorised scooter earlier in the season.

"When it was Elliott's birthday me and Hodgo were like 'what should we get for him?'," Rapana said.

"The boys got me a Gucci wallet when I was down in Melbourne for my 30th, and it's a special birthday and I knew he'd been dying to get a scooter.

"The boys all chipped in and it just showed the types of boys we are and the culture we have here."

However, the Kiwi international will have a much bigger role on Sunday than prankster and DJ, as he looks to produce the performance of a lifetime on the biggest stage of his career.

Injuries, including a posterior cruciate ligament injury, have curtailed his normally explosive impact on the right wing.

However, Rapana is ready to again show why he's one of the best finishers in the game against the Sydney Roosters.

Whitehead gets birthday surprise to replace stolen scooter

"It's really exciting, it's what dreams are made of to be in this situation," he said.

"These opportunities don’t come around all that often and for some people they don't come around at all.

"There's been so many players who've been in and out this year (with injury) as a playing group we've been a bit unlucky in that sense.

"But you've got to give credit to the young boys that have filled in, they have done a job every game and it's got us into the position we're in now."
