How do you know the Canberra Raiders are back in the NRL finals?
Lime green sausages and milk? Hardly. Big crowds? A good sign, but not quite.
Josh Papalii's coffee bill? Bingo. "We've been getting a few freebies," Papalii grins.
"I've had to pay for a lot of coffees the last couple of years. But everyone is getting right behind us this year, you can tell as soon as you go to get a coffee.
"We've had some rough patches. But the Canberra community is definitely behind us this year and you can feel it.
"A few years ago we were getting booed by our own fans, and that's just because of the frustration because we had a good team but we didn't perform.
"This year we've got a good team and we're performing, and it's nice to be a part of."
The Raiders can all but secure a top-four berth if they beat Manly at Canberra Stadium on Sunday and claim another big scalp on their charge towards a finals return.
The Green Machine haven't played finals since 2016 and have made the top eight just once in the past seven years.
But there is a fresh and positive attitude about the 2019 squad and their chances of breaking through for the club's first premiership since 1994.
Supporters have rallied and it is hoped the Raiders will break the 20,000 crowd barrier for the first time in almost a decade for a regular season game.
Average attendances have jumped to their highest level in 24 years and the players are delivering results on the field.
They fired a warning shot to their rivals when they shocked the Melbourne Storm with a come from behind win last week and now they've got Manly in their sights.
Manly has been one of Canberra's bogey teams in recent years, winning four of the past five matches between the teams.
"I think before this year other teams have probably underestimated Manly ... but this year they've been really consistent," said Josh Hodgson.
"I'm not really worrying about how we've gone against them in past years, we're a different team this year.
"Everyone wrote them off before the year had started and no one even had them in the top eight and was predicting them to come near the bottom," Hodgson said.
"Watching them play they're all playing for each other and have that real desire and seem like a really gritty team, no matter what is thrown at them they kind of love the niggle.
"They love getting into the tussle which is good for our middles, that's the kind of games you want to be in and they're entertaining to watch.
"Just because we're sitting in a decent spot on the ladder doesn't mean we've won anything."
Papalii wants to deliver for long-suffering Raiders supporters, who have stuck with the club through good and bad times.
"My partner and my dad call me up and say it's hard being a fan sometimes because they want to be out there," Papalii said.
"It's our job to perform and this year we're finally putting a few games together. But we've got a long way to go.
"We're not happy with what we've done so far, we've still got six games to go for the grand final and that's our focus."
