Penrith skipper Luke Lewis says the Panthers have a squad capable of making waves this season.
Lewis, was named captain earlier this year after ten years with the Panthers, wants the club to mark a new era with victory over Canterbury on Saturday.
“All the hard work has been done, and we’re looking forward to Saturday night but it’s going to be a tough game for us,” said Lewis.
“As a footy player and everyone in the league is the same, we’re pretty competitive. So we’re definitely not going to be holding back this year and I believe the group of guys we’ve got here can do the job. We’ve got a side that can trouble sides this year.
“We’re not looking too far ahead, we’re just worrying about Saturday night which is a cliche, but that’s the way we’re taking it.
“We’re here to do our job and do something we love.”
