it wont be for the knights. if manly lose to the titans and the warriors fire up for staceys last home game against the storm... the knights could be looking at a top 4 berth.

lots of ifs and buts... we still need to do the business tonight (which will be tough)... however it isn't good news for the panthers, regardless of tonights result.

This result will depend on the Raiders vs Knights game tonight IMO.

If Knights win.
Panthers will probably come out and beat the Knights with ease... as this game will effectively be pointless to our chances at making the finals.

If Raiders win.
Knights will DEFINITELY smash the Panthers... as a win would get us into the top 8, and whenever that's a possibility we're f*cking terrible.

I still think the Raiders will win tonight.

If Raiders win:
All signs point to the Knights winning at home. Penrith have been mentally weak in the big games this season, not just losing, but getting smashed.

If Knights win tonight:
Panthers will probably be out of the playoff race by the time Saturday comes around, and I'd still tip the Knights..

Mate, it will be our last home game for the year and the traditional Old Boys game so it wont be treated as "pointless" by the boys no matter what happens tonight.

If you think the Panthers will beat Newcastle "with ease" you are having a bath big time champ.

i think he was just being a bit narky about his own teams fickleness under pressure, rather than putting sh*t on the knights JW.

Going to be a playoff to see who get's destroyed by either the Dragons or Bulldogs in week one of the finals.

I think the Panthers for some reason.

Newcastle go from one of their toughest away assignments (Raiders in Canberra) to one of the games they generally do best in (Panthers at EAS). Coupled with a finals berth depending on the outcome and it being the last home game for the season, I'd tip the Knights comfortably. The only worry is that Tony Archer will be chosen as the ref. He's got a history of f**king the Knights, home or away!

it's alright, it's hard to predict that a team will just decide to dish up absolute sh*t with their season on the line

I've supported them for to long and know their pattern too well to do that. Season on the line ensures a meek effort as evidence by games against the Warriors, Broncos and Eels over the last month.
