    Penrith are notoriously our bogey side, and so this will be a tough assignment. They are prone to having a bad half of football, but can also dominate for the whole 80 (like they did against the Roosters).

    It's one us Warriors fans would dearly love though, given that we have the Storm in Melbourne the week after. Must. Win.

    Feeling more confident about this game than previous weeks with Waterhouse and Pritchard back and playing good footy last week, and Burns and Graham available this week so Lewis can go back to lock where he belongs.

    Also, Pritchard ALWAYS seems to play well against the Warriors. He has a hell of a lot of quiet games, but never against the Warriors. It's like he hates them or something. :lol: Seriously. Is this all in my head, or does anyone else agree?

    Warriors are no pushovers though and will obviously have the advantage of being in NZ. If we can put 80 minutes together like last week then I think we can win, but not by much.

    Panthers by 4 (hopefully).

    ^^ Kiwis in Aussie NRL teams tend to play well against the Warriors.

    Agreed. Puletua and Gulavao always lifted against the Warriors aswell.

    This will be a massive test for our team. We finally played our first 80 minute game last week... although we failed to put on a score that accurately reflected our dominance in that game. I think points will be even harder to come by here, so we have to take all our chances.

    Should be a good week for the Panthers, very excited to see the back row at full strength again. Great to see that Burns is back, Walsh gets too much ball and Burns did a much better job of getting his hands on the ball at opportune times at the start of this season than what Graham did last season. Coote and Paulo had probably the best games I've seen them play last week, hopefully it was a break-through game and they can maintain their level of performance.

    Penrith by 12, most of their points to come through the middle.

    Yeah I agree mate, last week was the first 80 minutes we've put together so far this year, and the opposition (Roosters) to be honest weren't great.

    We still have a hell of a lot to prove before we can be called "great", but I think the signs are there that we could have a decent year. Then again, the signs have been there in recent years too but never eventuated. So we'll just have to wait and see.

    Good luck to your mob by the way. :)
