Canberra Raiders five-eighth Jack Wighton has paid tribute to the late Comancheros leader Pitasoni Ulavalu, sharing a commemorative post on social media.
Ulavalu, 48, was fatally stabbed in a fight at Civic nightclub Kokomo's in the early hours of July 19, less than a week after a series of bail restrictions lifted and allowed him to attend a licensed premises.
The Canberra Comancheros commander had been under a series of bail restrictions as a result of a previous incident at the Southern Cross club in January last year.
Wighton shared a series of images on Instagram following the Raiders' 18-12 win over the Rabbitohs on Sunday, the first of which had the bikie boss' nickname 'Poko' written on his wrist.
"Solid from the boys... very scratchy from myself but [two] is [two]. Can't stop thinking about my Canberra family, that one's for you Poko," the post read.
A number of Raiders and NRL players commented on the post to show their support.
The Raiders told The Canberra Times they would not comment on the matter.
Meanwhile the Green Machine are still waiting to find out whether Josh Papalii and Joe Tapine will be allowed to travel to Townsville to play the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday.
The club submitted exemption requests to the NRL last week for the duo to play in Queensland without an influenza vaccination.
The Queensland government made the flu shot mandatory for NRL players to train and play in the Sunshine State when the competition rebooted.
Canberra recruit Corey Harawira-Naera has received clearance from the Project Apollo committee to train with the Raiders from Tuesday.
