“I’m excited for it. We’ve got some new players in our Kiwi team and I’m looking forward to working with them,” he said.
“I can’t wait to play against Steve [McNamara] and his team.
“He knows a lot about how we play, the Roosters boys.
“I can’t say I know how he’ll coach because he’s probably different when he’s a head coach, but it’s going to be exciting to see how we go.
“I know he’ll be telling his boys a few things that he can catch us with.
“I’ve got to work hard at training to see if I can counter those.”
