Proud of the team's efforts away from home last weekend, Chris Heighington yesterday told the media that he and the Sharks take great confidence out of the Raiders win into this week's match with the Panthers at Southern Cross Group Stadium.

Speaking of the work done by he and his fellow big men in the middle, Heighington said fullback Ben Barba and halves James Maloney shone in the Nation's Capital - reaping the rewards set up by the forwards' metres.

As well as throwing Barba's name into the Origin mix, Heighington gave an update on the health and wellbeing of his son Rocco, who was involved in a freak accident after the Sharks win over the Titans
