    Assuming that our Origin players get through without picking up an injuries, i think we can grab a decent win here.

    Although if they aren't able to backup, and Sammut is out injured along with Waterhoues and Gordon.... it could be a very painful game to watch.

    Painful is watching an injury depleted Tigers.

    Why is it that the crap players never get injured yet the good players are so vulnerable?

    Penrith by 13++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    What's the Tigers' record against Penrith over the years, 4-15?

    We'll need to win this. We could be out of the 8 after tonight, all for just 1 bad loss with a depleted team. Hope we can recapture our form of pre-origin

    Well our team this week could be extremely interesting.

    Monday, April 27, 2009
    Injuries from the Dragons game:
    Jarrod Sammut - torn rectus femoris - Doctor will assess on Monday, no time frame give, might be right to play against Tigers, but might not too
    Frank Puletua - left elbow - Doctor will assess on Monday
    Nathan Smith - corked left leg - will need to check for compartment syndrome
    Paul Aiton - left shoulder - will assess on Monday

    Outstanding injuries:
    Adam Woolnough - left shoulder - possibly 4 weeks
    Michael Gordon - ankle - 9 weeks
    Trent Waterhouse - eye (hyphema) - return for Tigers game
    Brad Tighe - pectoral muscle tear - return for Tigers game


    Nathan Smith is the only bloke injured from the Dragons game that we could afford to replace IMO. Aiton and Sammut have been brilliant for us this season, and Frank Puletua is probably our third best front rower at the moment. Petero being the best obviously, and Matt Bell being second best IMO.

    Galloway

    Farah backing up.

    We aren't exactly at full strength. Our backline is shot to pieces and Galloway is our best forward.

    I expect the Panthers to win unfortunately. I also think that would effectively kill our season.

    We will hopefully have Luke Lewis, Petero Civoniceva and Michael Jennings backing up. They're very important players to our side.

    With the blokes under injury clouds, and our Origin players having the potential to be injured. We could be down anywhere from 2 to 10 players.

    If Penrith get their Origin guys back, they definitely look the superior team. They also trounced the Tigers by 20 earlier in the season.

    Well after seeing the team video announcement, i'm feeling a little more confident. Sammut is 50/50 to play, and Waterhouse is waiting for an ok from the drs to play. Everyone else is pretty much certain to play.

    If we get through Origin without injuries, we should be pretty close to full strength.

    You could be right, a loss here will make it extremely difficult to get into the 8....even though we are only at the halfway point of the comp.

    Losing on Friday night would see the Tigers at lest 6 points out of the 8.

    I just can't pick the Tigers form of recent times though.
    I'm going to say Penrith, purely because they have the extra few days recovery and no travel involved from last weekend....the Tigers obviously had to travel to / from NZ and would have got back to Sydney yesterday....short preparation for them this week.

    If your Origin boys back up, the Tigers wont have enough in them to match you guys.

    We just have to hope Michael Jennings is able to backup successfully. I can see Lewis and Petero doing it no worries. It would be nothing new for them. Michael Jennings wouldn't be used to play 2 games in 3 days.

    Black pussy vs Oompah Loompah pussy?

    That's a tough choice

    Actually, midgets are so last year - So I'm going the Panthers

    Mind you - that logic goes out the window when you consider the action is at Leichhardt. The orange ones have an excellent record there.

    Jennings most likely won't play now. That's why I'm pissed with origin. A very ordinary lot with the exception of a few play in the Blue jersey, they lose and Jennings cops another injury.

    This is certainly a winnable game for us but its at Leichhardt and the Tigers will be desperate. We'll have to be as well to win. Hopefully if its close the Tigers will continue their poor recent record in tight games and we'll get away with it.
