  3. Shaun Berrigan

    Shaun Berrigan

    Brisbane centre/five-eighth partnered Allan Langer in the Broncos line-up until moving to half in 2003. After a season of moderate success, coach Wayne Bennett moved the tough, nuggetty backline player to the centres after Darren Lockyer shifted to five-eighth in 2004. Berrigan made his Test...
  4. Ruben Wiki

    Ruben Wiki

    Auckland centre (Otahuhu) came to Canberra in 1992 after representing the Junior Kiwis and NZ Maoris. Wiki's form as Mal Meninga's centre partner in 1994 made him one of the hottest properties in the game but the disclosure that he had signed a letter of agreement to play with the Auckland...
  5. Sione Faumuina

    Sione Faumuina

    Auckland forward spent a season with the Raiders before returning ‘home’ to play with the Warriors in 2002. Faumuina was left out of the club’s grand final squad in 2002 but a more consistent season, especially coming off the interchange bench, saw him selected as five-eighth in the one-off Test...
  6. Odell Manuel

    Odell Manuel

    Manuel played for the Warriors for two seasons, winning the Rookie of the Year award in 1999. In 2000 he represented the New Zealand Māori at the World Cup.

  8. Quentin Pongia

    Quentin Pongia

    Kiwi prop came to Canberra from the C’bury (NZ) club in 1993. After securing a place on the 1993-94 Kiwi tour of England and France, Pongia added much-needed muscle to the Canberra pack in the Raiders' grand final win over C’bury in 1994. In 1998 he would sign and play for the Warriors in what...

  10. Sean Hoppe

    Sean Hoppe

    In 1992 he played for Auckland in a preseason match against the Canberra Raiders. Auckland lost 14-32, but the Raiders, who had been looking for a quality winger since the retirement of John Ferguson, saw enough of Hoppe to offer him a contract and he moved to Canberra before the end of the...
  11. Phil Blake

    Phil Blake

    Manly junior burst onto the league scene as an 18-year-old halfback in 1982. Blake was a brilliant prospect, possessing a perfect chip-kick, with great anticipation and positional play, and was unlucky not to tour with the Kangaroos that year. A try-scorer in Manly's grand final loss to P’matta...
  12. Player Bill Tupou

    Bill Tupou Just watching the game again and I must say Billy Tupou is really underrated. His work in this game has been top notch, was very good after an early mistake last week too. Obviously he's not perfect and has the odd stuff up, but he's really settling into the team nicely and...
