Panthers would like to congratulate Jessie Abbott on his selection in the NSW Under 16’s side to play Queensland next Wednesday night, before Game 1 of the Holden State of Origin series in Brisbane.

Jessie is a St Mary’s junior who has been part of the Panthers’ development program since Under 12’s. He was a member of the Harold Matthews team that made the grand final a couple of weeks ago, and he has a very bright future ahead of him.

We wish Jessie and all the other boys the best of luck next week!
