NEWLY-CROWNED Australian champions Penrith Panthers are confident the public of Huddersfield will be highly impressed with the standard of their visiting junior team.
The Panthers Under 18s take on the Giants Academy in a challenge match at the McAlpine next Tuesday (7.30) at the start of a four-game tour.
Penrith are a club on the crest of a wave, with the senior side having just secured NRL Grand Final success with victory over Sydney City Roosters.
And Penrith head coach John Lang, who will be at the stadium to watch his young guns put through their paces, is confident they will give an excellent account of themselves.
"I don't think it's an over-exaggeration to say the administration of the Junior League at Penrith is the best in the world," he said.
"With over 6,000 kids playing in our district we have a massive pool of players to select from, and the juniors touring with us are the cream of the crop.
"I'm sure the fans who come along to watch the game against the Giants will be very impressed with the standard on show.
"These kids are the future of Australian rugby league."
Admission is £3 for adults (£1 concessions), with all fans located in the Lawrence Batley Stand.
