Jack Wighton has revealed that he can't wait to get back out to the country and play in front of the Bathurst community.

"I can't wait to have a game in the country again, I always love the crowds out there and Bathurst have a great ground," Wighton said. 

"I think there will be a good crowd out there and it will be good to give the fans out there a good match."

Wighton also knows that his side face a tough test when they come up against a strong Panthers side at Carrington Park on Saturday.

"They (Penrith) played really well against the Bulldogs last weekend, we know it's going to be a tough match and we will have to turn up."
