I wonder who we will rest this game?
I suspect Turuva, and maybe Smith, with Edwards resting last game against the cowboys.
I don’t think the boys will let the Eels have an easy one this week.

There hasn’t been any real update on Tago, Sorro or Kenny… I hope it’s not a sign of more serious issues.
Find it interesting that Salmon is back to reserves again… I guess we only have to wait until tomorrow to get more insight into what coach Cleary has in mind!
Is it just me, or is Soni trying to do less razzle dazzle/hail mary’s with the increase in gametime?
I have been wondering the same, 3 weeks now for what we thought were minor boggles or simply resting.
I also notice no injury updates on the club website since round 15.
Obviously playing their cards very close to their chest leading into the finals (after all who knew in ‘21 Edwards was playing on a broken leg), however as a fan it can get rather frustrating.
At least we are not self imploding like Souths are
, then again we have been there and done that in 2018
I too thought that Soni was doing too many party tricks. I would hazard a guess that, knowing he only had x minutes, he was trying to impress. I think with the added minutes, the pressure to make an impression has eased, which is a good thing. All he needs to do is improve his defense and he will then get better with experience.
The old spellcheck gremlin strikes again!

Updated NRL Teamlist: Round 26
Panthers coach Ivan Cleary has updated his squad to face Parramatta Eels at BlueBet Stadium.
Jesse McLean will become Panther No. 618 after being named to make his NRL debut as cover for Dylan Edwards.
Tom Jenkins will start on the wing in place of Sunia Turuva, while Liam Martin will play his 100th NRL game.
The Panthers will wear the
2023 home kit for the Round 26 clash.
LOL. I didn’t even notice. I was referring to these being referred to as injuries. They don’t have specifics and there are no updates or any source of where these
may have happened.
Nice way to rest players and play some mind games with the media as well.
Beware the injured eel. They do have a tendency to lift when playing the panthers.
Do you think they would be resting multiple weeks though if not injured?
My gosh, the difference between Crichton and Edwards in defence is huge.
Very ordinary tonight. Hopefully it is a huge wake up call for us.
Critta just doesn’t excite me as fullback., Hopefully that’s our bad game out of the way for the year.
There is so much more effort from Dyl in defence. He’s so often sprinting across the field to try and get to the tackle. Lots of jogging across tonight.
A few misreads in direction from scrum as well.
Let’s hope Kenny, Sorro and Tago are back on deck soon. Luai looks gone for the year.

I think so. Kenny and Sorensen have had some heavy workloads this year. Saw Kenny sitting in the stands at the game and looked fit as a fiddle, if anything, he looked pissed that he wasn’t out there.
