There's no surprise that Emre Guler has emerged as a key figure in the Canberra Raiders NRL squad in the past two seasons, such is the potential of the junior representative superstar.
Guler has long been regarded as a player who has what it takes to forge out a successful career in Rugby League, earning a reputation as a hard-working forward with a powerful running game and tireless defensive work rate.
He's been part of the NSWRL Pathways program for a number of years, earning selection in the CABE NSW Under 18s (2016) and 20s squads (2017 and 2018) while also representing the Australian U20s side for three consecutive years (2017, 2018, 2019).
That all coincides with 22 first-grade games since his NRL debut Round 23 of the 2018 season, as-well a maiden Grand Final appearance last year.
The 22-year-old has also been a core part of the Mounties squad in the Canterbury Cup NSW since 2017, averaging 115m and 27 tackles in his 35 appearances.
He has recorded eight appearances for the Green Machine in 2020, however, is currently sidelined for an extended period after fracturing his ankle in Round 8.
