Hey gang, I don't believe it, but for the first time ever since I signed up to BHQ, I have some insider info! 😮

Word is we are signing Jordan Rapana on a one year deal - it's pretty much all done and locked in. I've been told it's for a couple of reasons - he's keen to move back to Queensland (I think he was at the Gold Coast before Canberra?) and we're going to give him a run at fullback. Not sure if this will impact rumoured signings of Croft or Sezer, or how we're fitting it under the cap. Just passing on the info!

The source is very reliable - someone I've known for nearly a decade who's involved in the NRL, and an absolute top bloke.

Don't shoot the messenger. 🙂

Apparently hasn't hit the media yet, as they're wanting to keep it under wraps until the grand final is out of the way, for obvious reasons.

Rapana at fullback????? Nah. I’d only take him if he was replacing Isaako for the same price.

If we have signed him it means Oates wont be here next year as he isn't coming on a base deal.

weird one. not against but he's surely going to take up some space. and i guess that means herbie and co are going to be spending a bit more time at state level.

It's an odd one, maybe a package deal with Sezer..
Oates will be staying, so it'll be interesting.

In all of this, when the f are we gonna re-sign Fifi.
Just get it done.

I get why people are sweating on locking him up before November, but he’s still contracted for next season. We’re not going to lose him for next year

we are likely negotiating with his manager as we speak ... but getting our roster set for next year is of greater priority

I love how Rapana goes about his footy, not sure if he is our answer at fullback but I would be very happy to have him.

I don't think he's a Fullback, Canberra would agree, considering they bought an untested Fullback that was unwanted at the Warriors to play Fullback ahead of him this year, despite having a few handy replacements for him on the Wing.

Happily have him on the right wing though!

1. Isaako
2. Oates
3. Bird
4. Boyd
5. Rapana

If we do sign Rapana, this will be our backline come Round 1, bank on it.

This would be the very definition of a pointless signing.

We don't need him. He isn't a fullback and we've got wingers that can score tries.

The only thing I can think of as to why we would sign him is we're desperate for experience.

Maybe an indication that Darius will retire in the off season perhaps.
