Ra­pana will rev up Ross

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NRL - BARRY TOOHEY

NATHAN Ross loves the chal­lenge Jordan Ra­pana pro­vides ri­val wingers.

It’s why he is look­ing for­ward to their bat­tle when the Knights clash with Can­berra at New­cas­tle to­day.

“Jordan is one of my favourite wingers in the comp and one of my favourite play­ers to play against,” Ross said.

“You look for­ward to th­ese games to chal­lenge your­self. It’s go­ing to be a good bat­tle.”

Fresh from his first taste of rep­re­sen­ta­tive footy with City Ori­gin, Ross has as­pi­ra­tions to play at an even higher level.

NSW coach Lau­rie Da­ley has al­ready sin­gled him out as a player who wouldn’t look out of place in a Blues jumper.

“It’s good to know I’m in his sights,” Ross said. “I think I played well in the City-Coun­try game but I have got to bring that form back to New­cas­tle now and play well here.”
