Young Panthers picked for Origin
Panthers NYC players Stefano Hala and Tom Skinner have earned selection for their respective states ahead of the U20s State of Origin clash on Wednesday.
18-year-old prop Hala, who played for the Junior Kangaroos earlier this month, has been named on the bench in the NSW U20s squad.
The Blues have won all five of the U20s Origin clashes to date and this year are coached by Danny Buderus.
Originally hailing from Mackay, Queensland, Skinner has been named in the Maroons squad by coach Justin Hodges.
The 18-year-old lock forward last year represented the QLD U18s side and has made eight appearances for the Panthers NYC side in 2017.
The U20s Origin clash kicks off at 5.15pm on Wednesday and will be livestreamed on NSWRL.com.au.
