From idolising others, to becoming the idol. Ryan Papenhuyzen grew up as a Rugby League tragic, he could only dream of winning a Premiership, and he has lived it and is now setting an example for the next generation of footy players.

He is a switched on, charismatic, perfectly self-aware, hardworking and an unbelievably resilient athlete.
