Penrith star Trent Merrin says it took him less than a week to accept a contract extension that will see him remain a Panther for the next four years.Merrin last week became the fifth NRL player this year to own a contract until the end of 2020, joining Canterburys David Klemmer and Moses Mbye, current teammate Leilani Latu and future teammate James Tamou.Despite being just a year into a three-year deal at Penrith after moving from St George Illawarra last summer, Merrin had no hesitation when approached just last week to commit long-term.I think I signed it during the same week, he said.To be honest it was a pretty easy answer. The biggest question was whether I was happy or not and I couldnt be happier, he said.It was a pretty quick process. I ran it past my partner and my family. Its been a great challenge so far. Thats what you want as a player, to keep being challenged and test yourself as a player and a person.The former NSW State of Origin representative admitted it took him time to adjust to life at the foot of the mountains after spending the first seven years of his career in the Red V.A premiership-winner with the Dragons, Merrin said he now views himself a Panthers leader.It was a challenge at the start to leave a place where I spent most of the time I loved and being a part of but this has just been a great place to be a part of, Merrin said.I love coming here and being a part of this group of men. Its definitely something that I pride myself on now - to be a leader at the club and put this club in a position it deserves to be.But while Merrin is confident in the clubs long-term future, he is adamant they could do damage this year, sitting ninth and still in finals contention.After a disappointing golden point loss to the Warriors last week, Merrin labelled Mondays meeting with the Sydney Roosters do-or-die.Its a must-win. Thats what Im preparing for. Every week from here on in is a must-win, he said. Cheap Authentic Lions Jerseys .

LEXINGTON, Ky. -- After playing in the bright lights and hype of the Champions Classic at New Yorks Madison Square Garden, a big question will be how No. 2 Kentucky responds to more subdued environment.The Wildcats return home fresh off their impressive 69-48 rout of No. 13 Michigan State and they will get their answers Sunday night against Duquesne.Great question, Kentucky associate head coach Kenny Payne said Friday. But we dont have to worry about that. The way that we coach, the way that we prepare those kids know that after that game is over, we celebrate. Its over. On to the next.The issue is outside of this environment. The friends. The parents. Their families. Now, they might talk to them about, Man, you all are the real deal. But when they walk in this gym and they walk in our offices, they know its on to the next. So they have no time to relax and feel good about anything. Were trying to get better.Payne explained it is part of the regular process in playing at Kentucky where everyone else is always trying to fast-forward to an NCAA championship.Its in everything we do every single day, Payne said. Were trying to get better every day. Are we happy we beat Michigan State thats a really good team? Yes, we are. Did we play our best? Not even close. Not even close.The top concern for coaches is rebounding. Kentucky was out rebounded 44-40 by Michigan State and 36-28 by Stephen F. Austin. UK did top Canisius 39-36.I think one of the things that has been a little disappointing with our athleticism, energy and length is that we havent dominated teams on the glass thus far, Payne said. Dont see that as a long-term problem, but its something that we have to focus on and get better at.In Duquesne, the 3-0 Wildcats will face a team that is 2-2 on the young season.dddddddddddd The Dukes defeated Loyola Maryland 65-60 and Saint Francis 89-75 but lost to Penn State 82-74 and Canisius 78-77 on Friday.We just need maturity and more time together, Duquesne coach Jim Ferry said. The biggest issue we have is the schedule. Were basically playing every other day. So weve not had the practice time we really needed. Our practices have been our games (leading to) making decisions on the fly.Duquesne is trying to restart after losing its top three scorers to graduation. Sophomore guard Tarin Smith leads the way at 15.5 points per game followed by freshman forward Isiaha Mike at 12.0. Darius Lewis, a 6-11 senior post player from Lexington, Ky., is the top rebounder at 6.5.Kentucky is averaging 83 points per game and has three players scoring in double figures, all guards. Sophomore Isaiah Briscoe is tops at 19.7 points per game followed by freshman Malik Monk at 16.3 and DeAaron Fox at 15.0.Freshman Bam Adebayo and sophomore Isaac Humphries share the rebounding lead at 5.7 per game.Monk is coming off his best game with a team-best 23 points against Michigan State during which he made 7-of-11 from 3-point range. In fact, it was the best overall game by Kentucky to date. To fend off any letdown, coaches make sure players are competing against themselves.They dont really know, and theyre learning, Payne said. For every one of these kids in this program, other than Isaiah Briscoe, everybody is still learning who they are as a player. There have been times when they havent been in dog fights before. So, theyre getting a chance to see. Youth NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Gear Camo China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Online ' ' '
