In his own words, James Maloney isn't to fond of being a leader.

However, the 31-year-old found himself in that exact situation at the beginning of the year when he would be thrust into a leadership role when joining a very young Panthers side. 

And now, the 9-game NSW Blues "veteran" finds himself once again as a leader this time in the Origin cauldron. 

Maloney spoke to Triple M Saturday NRL about drawing inspiration from his short time at the Panthers (thus far) as he prepares to lead 11 NSW debutants in Origin 1.
