well they are throwing their best team against us…this will be a super test for our makeshift backs…especially Naden and Yeo who will be tested big time

what happened to Tim Grant ?

Grade 2 Pectoral Tear. Will probably miss between 10 to 14 weeks.

I imagine Kenny is back in reggies due to top 30 salary cap rules and both Egan and Katoa available?

Pitty really, Katoa offers nothing compared to the young 20? year old.

I notice Jed is named in NSW cup, is that is diary’s game back from injury?

Give me strength!!! Why are we being punished each week?


You’ve got to think his (Cummins) mindset will be don’t fail Penrith again.

Good to see Big Sam starting in Reggie’s, I can’t get there this week so I am hoping one of our own experts can provide an update on his performance for me :ok_hand:

a glorious day to shine down on them chooks ! C’mon Panthers.

Katoa playing reserves, so Kenny may be on the bench or starting.

So Cleary and Kenny come into the side.

Yet to be seen if Luai and Egan start, or if Cleary and Kenny start (won’t know till kickoff).

Winterstein on the bench with Martin starting would also be a possibility.

Bench of 2 forwards, a hooker and a half. Bit of a gamble. While our attack needs some spark, and our backrowers are capable of 80 mins, I would be more comfortable with 2 props on the bench.

Alas, no such luxury.

Kenny has obviously been elevated to the top 30 with Katoa in reserves.

was sorta hopin Luai got another run !

Keep the faith, we won’t know till kickoff

Luai and Egan on the bench with Kenny in the run on side

For mine i would start with Egan and Maloney and have Kenny and Luai coming off the bench with asking Maloney just to play a solid 30 minutes without giving away a penalty and bring Luai on at the end of the half and the same with Kenny hoping they can penetrate the Rooster forwards.

the Roosters have shown how they can get beat and that is by an up tempo game and a forward pack willing total it to them…and oddly they have been overwhelmed by this and haven’t been able to respond or go with he other team

we need to do this today…we need to lift and too maintain maximum effort for the full 80 minutes but our forwards must dominate

Good first half, keep it up Penrith!

it was as i had hoped and they weren’t running through us whereas we found holes in behind them
Their try came from a mistake in defence and was out very wide.

Intensity will need to lift but i believe they are there to be taken and we need to go for the full 80

We are right in this and we could see Laui used as a dummy half and Egan used as another forward

well well well…congrats to the boys.

did exactly as i had hoped…kept it going at high intensity for 80 and it paid dividends

Maloney has his best game for us this year and RCG found his mojo but they wasn’t alone and there needs to be a couple more mentions.

Naden/Martin and Kenny have added something quite inspirational and i believe its rubbing off on the team as a group.

Its interesting to see how we have had these wins minus Blake and Whare along with DWZ leaving the club…are they or where they the problem?

It was a great result and goes a long way to getting the year back on track but that only comes with more improvement

Great win and enjoy boys

Agree…great result but also a shout out to Brian Too played with great enthusiasm.
