Canberra’s Jordan Rapana wasn’t sighted at the Raiders’ fan day on Tuesday following their NRL Grand Final loss to the Roosters, although he was quick to snuff out any speculation regarding his future.
“I’ll be back here in the lime green next year, without a doubt,” Rapana told ABC on Sunday night.
Rapana was the only Raider not to make an appearance on Tuesday, with club officials joking to the 1000-strong crowd he was “somewhere between Sydney and Canberra.”
However, the Raiders could still lose Rapana, who currently doesn’t have a deal for 2020 locked in.
Joey Leilua and Aiden Sezer could also depart this off-season, if rival clubs come calling for the duo.
John Bateman will also meet with the Raiders over the coming weeks about a potential to upgrade his current contract.
