Kenny ready to replace me: Koroisau

Vodafone Fiji Bati and Penrith Panthers Hooker Apisai Koroisau says Mitch Kenny is ready to take his position after setting the tone in the NRL final on Sunday.
 
Koroisau believes Kenny has shown during the finals series that he is ready to take over the No.9 jersey while the Panthers have signed Wests Tigers second-rower Luke Garner as a replacement for Kikau.
 
"Mitch knew his role when he got out there. I call him a kamikaze. He just goes out there and puts his body on the line, with no self-preservation,” Koroisau told the club."
 
"That is why he is in this team and that is why he was starting tonight. He is an incredible player and I think the No.9 is safe for next year."
 
"I had massive wraps on Mitch Kenny and Moses Leota for the way they were really putting their shoulders into the other team. We were going after them and just to watch that from the sideline was incredible. I knew we were on from the get-go."
 
The Panthers are set to have the largest representation of any NRL club at the World Cup, with up to 20 players set to fly to England this week to play for Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Italy and Lebanon.
