Sharks backrower Wade Graham spoke with the media following the side's arrival in Canberra this afternoon, ahead of tomorrow's Qualifying Final versus the Raiders.

Well aware of the difficult task that awaits the side, Graham paid plenty of credit to the Raiders team which had impressed at length throughout the back end of the regular season.

"They're very damaging all over the park, they can score points from everywhere, and from 1-17 they are all threats," Graham said.

"They're no easy challenge, they've probably been the best team in the competition throughout the back half of the year.

"We've got a very big challenge." 

Graham also spoke of the fitness of Captain Paul Gallen, and that of the work needed to be done of the team so if the inspirational leader is to be ruled a late out.
