Dyldam Parramatta Eels hooker Kaysa Pritchard says he can't wait to pull on the sky blue jersey for the first time as part of the Under 20s NSW Origin side.
The 19-year-old says he set the representative honour as his goal in May last year, when he watched his teammates Junior Paulo, Vai Toutai and Kelepi Tanginoa play their part in the Blues' 36-12 win at Penrith's Sportingbet Stadium.
"I'm pretty excited: I feel very blessed," Pritchard said.
"I’ve always wanted to make this side, and it's been a [specific] goal for me since last year watching the boys like Vai and Junior play."
"There are a few boys in the team I know, like Mitchell Moses, I played with him in Harold Matts, and I'm looking forward to playing alondside him again."
