Rapira wins Players' player of the day

6:49 pm on 20 April 2010

The Warriors prop Sam Rapira has been named the National Rugby League club's Players' player of the day for the third straight week.

Rapira was the overwhelming choice for the weekly accolade in the narrow loss against Manly and again after the victory over the Bulldogs in Sydney.

He made in three in a row today when his team-mates rated him comfortably the best in Sunday's loss to the Panthers, who won 42-12 in Auckland.

Rapira was one of only two Warriors to gain 100 metres and he also made 34 tackles in the 64 minutes he was on the field.

He's also made only one error in six games.
