Relive Sam Rapira's two tries within seven minutes against the Raiders on Sunday.

It was only the second double of his 165-game career, his first coming against the Bulldogs in 2009.

In his previous 164 appearances Rapira had scored 12 tries but only one in his last 50 games stretching back to 2011; before the Canberra clash he had gone try-less in his last 26 games.

Then against the Raiders Feleti Mateo's sweet pass put the front rower through a hole and on an angled 30-metre run to the line, getting there ahead of the speedy Anthony Milford in the process.

That was three minutes before halftime. Four minutes into the second half Rapira was over between the posts from short range after another precision off load from Mateo. Double cause for double celebration.
