Merrin tipped as new captain
STAR Penrith recruit Trent Merrin has emerged as a favourite for the Panthers captaincy after an impressive start to the pre-season.
Panthers fullback Matt Moylan said he had been impressed with Merrin’s efforts since the 26-year-old moved from St George Illawarra.
“He definitely brings a lot of experience, he has played Origin, played for Australia, he has won a grand final, so that is everyone’s goal when they are playing football - they want to do all those things,” Moylan said. “He brings a lot of leadership.”
New coach Anthony Griffin said he was keeping an open mind on who his skipper would be in 2016.
