Beau Scott has always received a boost after representing Country, now he hopes his teammates pick up on those same benefits.
Scott first donned the Country jumper back in 2009 alongside experienced names like Andrew Ryan, Jamie Lyon and Alan Tongue.
It was experience that taught the Picton Magpies junior about the expectations required to succeed on the representative stage.
Flash forward four years and Scott believes fellow Knights teammates Robbie Rochow and Tyrone Roberts are set to receive a similar lift in confidence following their Country Origin experience in Dubbo on Sunday.
“Tyrone and Robbie had really good games on the weekend and I think they’ll take a lot out of the weekend," Scott said after training on Tuesday.
“Especially coming back to club football, they’ll take a lot of confidence into this weekend.
"I think I played Country in 2009.
"It was great to get amongst the older people that had been around the game a lot longer than I was at the time.
"So like I said Tyrone and Robbie will take a lot out of the week.”
Asked about his own performance for Country and potential NSW Origin chances, Scott was humble in his response.
"Yeah not too bad," he said about his effort in the thrilling 26-all draw with City.
"I played pretty solid.
"As for Origin I’ll worry about this Sunday to start with and whatever happens down the track, it will be a result of the football on the field."
While there's no doubting Scott would love to return to the Origin arena for the first time since 2012, his immediate focus is the Knights and Sunday's must-win clash against Penrith.
“I think it’s a pretty crucial game for us on Sunday," he says.
“We do need to start winning games and I guess it has got to happen sooner rather than later.
“We’ll be missing a few, but I’m sure whoever comes into that role will fill that position adequately."
