Canberra Raiders Release Genius Video To Announce The Signing Of Jamal Fogarty


Canberra Raiders Release Genius Video To Announce The Signing Of Jamal Fogarty

To the Canberra Raiders social team, hats off to you.

The NRL club decided to announce the signing of Jamal Fogarty from the Gold Coast Titans with a hilarious video - and even Fogarty himself probably had a giggle.

To let their fans know that they'd just locked down the talented halfback on a three-year deal, the Raiders thought it'd be an appropriate time to pay homage to an iconic incident from 2020.

Yes, we're talking about that legendary chase down from Josh Papalii.


Playing for the Titans at the time, Fogarty collected the ball in his own in-goal and launched an attack of his own.

Pinning his ears back, the No.7 sprinted at full pelt down the field, jinking his way past a couple of recovering Raiders defenders as he neared the opposition's try line.

With nothing but green grass in sight, he looked destined to score a superb solo try - but Papalii was on hand to ensure that didn't happen.


The 120kg forward put on the afterburners and somehow managed to catch up to Fogarty.

And with a perfectly-timed ankle tap, Papalii managed to stop his rival in his tracks and prevent an almost-certain try.

NRL fans, particularly the Canberra supporters, were absolutely loving the sight of seeing a big prop keep pacing with a halfback.


Now, a few years on, the Raiders decided to announce the signing of Fogarty by resurfacing the infamous moment - only this time they swapped out Papalii's figure for a text box reading "3 year contract".

The genius clip was posted on the Raiders' socials and instantly gained the seal of approval from footy fans.

On Twitter, one bloke commented: "Hey Canberra, in the off-season can you post footage of a footrace between Papalii and Jamal. Call it the milk gift?"

Now, that's the sort of content we'd love to see.
