Dunamis Lui continued to produce consistent performances for the Raiders in 2019 as he was one of only three players to take part in every game this season.

With Shannon Boyd and Junior Paulo leaving at the end of 2018, Lui stepped up to the plate and played his role whether starting at prop or coming off the bench.

His role was valued highly by Head Coach Ricky Stuart who named Lui as the recipient of the NRL Coaches Award.

The prop averaged close to 80 running metres across the season and also got through plenty of defence with 609 tackles to his name for the season.

Lui also scored his first try for the Raiders as he crashed over the posts after three minutes in Round 18 against the Wests Tigers. It also marked the prop’s first NRL try since 2014.

The 29 year old also represented Samoa at the end of the season as he started at lock in the match against Fiji.
