I'VE absolutely loved being in Origin camp but watching my Panthers teammates take the field on Saturday night was hard because I wanted to run on with them.
I thought the boys played well on Saturday night.
They played with a lot of heart but unfortunately it wasn't enough to get the win.
It was great seeing big Clint Newton score a try in the first half, his third for the season.
You've got to love a forward who can score tries.
Speaking of scoring tries, how awesome is it to watch young Josh Mansour playing so well in the top grade?
He runs at the line hard and has some amazing finishing skills.
His try in the corner was absolutely freakish!
And I continue to be impressed by Blake Austin, he's young but he plays with so much confidence.
We take on the Manly Sea Eagles on Sunday afternoon.
Manly are sitting at fourth on the table and are coming off a win against the Roosters.
Taking on the reigning premiers is a tough ask, but we've proven in the last few weeks that we can be competitive if we do the little things right.
We have to complete our sets, defend as one unit and eliminate the silly penalties and errors out of our game.
So come out to Centrebet Stadium on Sunday to cheer us on and see if we can get the job done this week.
