In the opening round of the 2007 season, he made his NRL debut for the Panthers, coming off the bench in the 18-0 loss to the Sharks. He would make his run on debut in Round 6 against Melbourne at Olympic Park, starting in the second row. In total he would make 15 appearances in his first season, primarily off the bench and had a small number of starting appearances, including one in the centres. He scored his maiden try versus the Sydney Roosters in Round 14.

He would start 2008 in the Premier League but would fight his way back into the NRL squad by the middle of the season, playing a total of 9 matches, with 8 of them off the bench.
