"The Raiders have helped me become the player I am today and without their support I wouldn't be where I am.

"I think with the right attitude and hard work we can definitely be a very successful team over the next few years and I can't wait to start next season."

Papalii played all 24 matches for the Raiders in 2015 and averaged 98 metres and 29 tackles per game.

He also passed the 100-game milestone and earned a recall to the Maroons Origin squad.

Papalii joins Joey Leilua, Shannon Boyd and Jack Wighton in recently recommitting to Canberra.
