The KARI City Origin side came together at Allianz Stadium for the first time this morning ahead of their clash against Country Origin in Wagga Wagga on Sunday.
Five Panthers players were named in the side, including last year’s 18th man and this year’s starting lock, Tyrone Peachey.
The City team will call Coogee home for the next two days before travelling to Wagga Wagga to begin preparations for Sunday’s bout at McDonalds Park.
Tickets to the 2015 AAMI Country-City clash, a genuine battle for NSW VB Blues spots, can be purchased both online via Ticketek or through selected Telstra stores in Wagga Wagga. Purchase tickets before game day for as little as $10 for adults, $5 for children and $25 for a family of four.
