Raiders players to watch in 2021

Jack Wighton NRL bettingJack Wighton
Born: 4/2/1993
Games: 178
Tries: 59
Position: Five-Eighth

The previous two seasons have be stand out performances for five-eighth Jack Wighton. Ricky Stuart made the decision to move him from fullback into the five-eighth position which has proved to be a significant move to the Canberra Raiders as they have gone on to make the grand final in 2019 and make top four in 2020. Personally for Jack he has managed to win the 2019 Clive Churchill Medal and the 2020 Dally M Medal plus playing a big role in the 2019 victory for New South Wales team. Jack played 22 out of the 23 games scoring 13 tries with 8 try assists and an average of 276.8 kicking metres. All eyes will be on him this season to see if he can back up his performance for a third season.

Josh Papalii NRL bettingJosh Papalii
Born: 13/5/1992
Games: 219
Tries: 52
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 , Papalii was switched over to the middle to play prop through the middle of 2018. This resulted in in him having some of the best seasons of his career. Playing 22 out of the 23 games last season Papalii had 44 tackle breaks and a 96% tackle efficiency. When the raiders are close to the line and need someone to break through the defence this is the player they go too, managing to score 5 tries last season and 6 in 2019. We are expecting the same performance out of him this year.

Charles Nicoll-Klokstad NRL bettingCharles Nicoll-Klokstad
Born: 2/8/1993
Games: 54
Tries: 25
Position: Fullback
Charles Nicoll-Klokstad made the switch from New Zealand Warriors to Canberra Raiders at the start of the year in 2019 and has been a key player in the Raiders squad. Having a 46% of going over every game and having 70 tackle breaks last season he is one to watch. We are expecting him to have a big footprint in the Canberra Raiders offence this year.
