Jordan Rapana has provided Raiders fans with plenty of memorable moments from his time in green as he signed off as a Canberra Raider in 2019.

After Rapana was initially ruled out for the first few rounds of the season due to a shoulder injury, Rapana made a return to the side in Round 2 when the Raiders faced the Melbourne Storm at GIO Stadium.

A fan favourite at GIO Stadium over recent seasons, Rapana loves open space. After posting some impressive numbers early on in the season which included 120 post-contact running metres against the Newcastle Knights in Round 3, Rapana bagged himself two tries as the Raiders defeated the Cowboys 30-12 in Townsville.

After impressing early on in the season, Rapana suffered a rib injury that sidelined him for the Raiders Round 8 clash in Wagga Wagga against the Penrith Panthers. 

Further frustration followed for the New Zealand international as he suffered a PCL strain in his return match for the Raiders in their NRL Magic Round clash against the Sydney Roosters.

Rapana proud to reach 100 games for the Raiders

Rapana made a successful return to the starting side for the Raiders Round 13 clash against the Wests Tigers at Bankwest Stadium where he scored a try and conjured up 163 running metres as the green machine recorded a 28-0 win. The match was also Jordan's 100th Raiders game.

Rapana continued to show consistent form for the remainder of the 2019 NRL season where he played his part in the Raiders run to the grand final.

Rapana's most memorable moment came in the Raiders come from behind win against the Melbourne Storm at AAMI Park where he scored a crucial try in the second half as the Raiders eventually ran out as 22-18 winners.

The Raiders would like to wish Jordan Rapana all the best at the Panasonic Wild Knights.
