Not fussed re Mansour. The other bloke Naden don’t deserve to be dropped.

Naden to the centres and mrwalker’s mate to replace Jack Hetherington - mention him all you like, just don’t pick him :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Mansour had to come back into the squad which is a shame for Naden but a great problem to have
I would like to see Leniu in for Burns.
Leniu has something and needs some game time at this level. Burns has made quite a few mistakes defensively.
I guess if we are concerning ourselves with selections we are going OK
Good to see the same squat run out week after week and would be interested to hear from players if the game being faster is helping them with recovery etc.
On this game, all games are a must win but with a Top 8 so bunched up we need to secure this win and to win going away would be the best outcome.
Will depend on which Tigers side turns up and the new surface might’ve some impact on both sides.

The Tigers will be up for this game, it will provide them with a test of where they are at.

Given we will continue with our energy under these new rules, thus winning more often than not, we will be a target for all sides, particularly the ones in bottom 8.

Agree that they will be up for a fight, especially with the Cleary factor. Will be a game not to be taken lightly.

OK, we got tickets for the game! Tickets available (limited number) for footy members with code provided ($25). First live game since Rnd 1, so hoping for a win.

enjoy mr walker, enjoy.

Going to be stuck at work again, luckily on a yard shift, so I will at least be able to listen live this week.

:mega: Panther Pride Man of the Match voting is now open here.

That was a great win considering what we were up against.
First lets mention their tactic of feigning injury to slow down play and to try and break up our rhythm.
Aided by a referee performance which at best was terrible.
Now lets talk about the elephant in the room like the JFH being cited for a crusher tackle and Api being cited for a tackle.
Yet that grub Leilua only got 10 in the bin for what was a blatant and reckless head high on Edwards who didn’t have the ball and will now have to be cited by the match review committee only to be followed up by another and blatant head high on Edwards by the grub #11
Lets not even talk about how Reynolds blatantly challenged the touch judge.
Oh did i mention the 6 again calls being made on us.

Putting the game in perspective i think we got suckered and i hope our team can learn from this because we fell for their taunts and cheap shots and when we came down to their level they scored points, when we played to our strengths we got the points

I hope TO’O is ok but looks like he could be out for a bit.

Ugly game but we got the win


“We kept our calm and did what we came here to do, that was to get the win” Nathan Cleary

At times dour and predictable, still a win full of merit against a spirited opposition.
