Raiders players to watch in 2022

Jack Wighton NRL bettingJack Wighton
Born: 4/2/1993
Games: 199
Tries: 65
Position: Five-Eighth

This could be a critical year in Jack Wighton’s career. After winning the Clive Churchill Medal in 2019 and the Dally M Medal in 2020, the Canberra playmaker was well below his brilliant best from most of 2021. With so much competition for State of Origin places in the NSW setup, Wighton will need to make a strong start to 2022 to ensure he retains a spot in Brad Fittler’s best 17.

Josh Papalii NRL bettingJosh Papalii
Born: 13/5/1992
Games: 239
Tries: 56
Position: Prop

Crowned the Meninga Medalist for the club’s Player of the Season on three occasions, Josh Papalii has established himself as one of the best props in the game. Having played most of his career in the second-row, he was switched over to the middle in 2018 and hasn’t looked back since. With the Raiders losing a few senior players in recent years, it’ll be up to blokes like Papalii to lead the way.

Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad NRL bettingCharnze Nicoll-Klokstad
Born: 2/8/1993
Games: 62
Tries: 28
Position: Fullback

Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad made the switch from the New Zealand Warriors at the start of 2019 and quickly established himself as a key player for the Canberra Raiders. His hustle and bustle in the fullback role has allowed Jack Wighton step into the five-eighth slot, which has had an enormous impact on Canberra’s fortunes. With injury restricting him to just eight appearances last season, CNK will be eager to get back out there and find the sort of form that helped Canberra reach a grand final.
