    Will the Panthers have 17 fit players?

    I know. Another race home from work, change in to my knights gear like a magician behind the sheet and bolt up the freeway, park miles away, walk to the ground like I am in the Olympics and still get there 6 minutes after kickoff.

    Last game was very deflating walking in and its 12 blot already.

    Would like to see a couple of changes in the forwards for this one, Yates and King in for enthusiasm, change things a bit, not fussed who drops but must keep Esee, DanS, Fitz, Griff and Guerra, see no reason to change the backs mainly due to lack of good replacement.

    Well you finish 16th you get all the unwanted time spots the ensuing year.

    Channel 9 don't want us besmirching their free to air advertising bucks.

    Mate they should think of all the extra breaks with our shakey defence lol.

    Huge chance here, Panthers are busted ATM, hopefully with our crapness we can still over come them.

    Last time we had a 14 or whatever it was point lead so feeling positive with this one. Gotta Win a few of these home ones now too but again hate these spots playing teams off a tough loss. Then again so have we so hope Brownie puts a rocket up the players for the little things that made the south’s win bigger then it should have been.

    Unless we see changes in defence then i cant see a win for a while... even with injured players the panthers look dangerous in attack..

    We drop out of the 8 this week and unlikely we will get back inside it until 2019.

    Interesting to see what the team sheet is on Tuesday... unfortunately for brown not having pearce is going to hurt us big time over the next 3 months...

    Seems all we need to do it hang in there and if the game is 10 or less with 15 to go we have a chance but as soon as it gets bigger than that heads drop and they kinda slow down a bit...

    Lack of depth doesnt help with a nsw cup team sucking

    Have a little confidence Nick.

    They don't have Cleary either and it shows.

    Isn’t Pearce aiming for a late June/Early July return?

    Pearce is out for another 8+ weeks, get used to it, we have to, should, win against Penrith at home with all there injury problems and if not don't deserve to be in 8, if we win we will be up amongst the big boys fighting above our weight. Unfortunately this reasonable start has many considering top 8 and getting disappointed with not getting desired results, work in process is what we are and top 10 at season end is good result especially without Pearce for half the season. The next few weeks will tell how we are going.

    If win this week by my calculations we could be back in the 8 at worst out of it on for and against.

    Josh King had his best stats for the year in reserve grade - 59 minutes, 37 tackles 1 missed, only 115 metres, but we had less than even possession and he topped the metres for our forwards by a fair way.

    Like to see king and yates come in for heighington and j Sif. More so Yates for he’s aggressive hits. But king has also good metres and a handy offload
