THIS week is a very special one for us here at the Panthers.
The Women in League, or “pink” round, is a time for us to honour all the women at the forefront of the game — and those behind the scenes — who have helped shape our game into the successful competition it is today.
There will be plenty going on around Centrebet Stadium this Saturday, which will be officially known as McGrath Foundation Stadium for the week, thanks to Centrebet getting behind us.
We’ll have the McGrath Foundation team selling pink wigs and scarves to raise money to help breast care nurses continue their important work around the country.
Glen McGrath will also be there to hand the special shield to the winning captain.
The Panthers Women in League will also be selling some delicious cupcakes and raising money for their local charities.
They already raised $5000 at their annual lunch earlier this week.
We’re also lucky to have the Women’s Origin teams battling it out before the regular games, showcasing the talents of the female rugby league players from NSW and Queensland.
Of course my focus, and that of my teammates, will be on the field as we take on our neighbours the Parramatta Eels.
This week we’ll be making sure we get our game plan right and harnessing our strengths.
And we’re not discounting the ability of the Eels either.
They’ve been playing some pretty good football in patches.
We know that we can’t clock off any time in the game.
We’re definitely not counting ourselves out yet, and I’m looking forward to seeing all our fans in the stands cheering us on.
