Confidence has swept through the Canberra Raiders camp today after results return from a new in-house player testing program.
The 27-year-old prop Josh Papalii has today tested positive for 100% full cream pasteurised Canberra Milk.
This comes as the 150-game NRL superstar turns his career around with explosive form, a far cry from his sabbatical spent last year in reserve grade, after eight years in the capital.
Today’s test results have all but confirmed Papalii’s place as the saviour of the almighty Green Machine.
His try in the 73rd minute of Friday’s showdown against the South Sydney also made this very clear, in an Origin-like storming off the Chooks line – Papalii couldn’t have been taken down with a meat axe.
With other players testing positive for citrus lime and Kingsley’s Chicken, the bookies are rushing to adjust odds on this weekend’s grand final.
As was reported earlier tofay, the four, or five (?), English players that make up the side have also tested positive for The Viking Clap – which has since become a concern for the local medical community, who claim the bacteria has spread through Mooseheads dancefloor like wildfire.
