    Hopefully Warriors pack white shorts the next time they travel to Penrith. Players just blended in together in tackles

    Warriors didn't give this match the importance it deserved, much like us last week.

    I’m not sure if we were complacent. I just don’t think that we’re very good.

    It's good to see so many young juniors coming through the Penrith system...

    With RTS, Johnson, Green, Luke as your spine I though you had pretty good length.

    Last night goes to show something- it really doesn’t matter how good your spine is when they are playing behind a completely dominated pack

    He really needed to be beside an experienced half, not a rookie.
    He wanted a regular first grade opportunity. Lui is contracted till the end of 19, Maloney 20. The dream team for Penrith would be Lui at 6 and Cleary at 7.

    It's a common problem in the NRL. We had similar erectile dysfunction last week.

    Ah that's right. Paul Taylor! Yes I remember now what a game he had. He definitely would've been our long term fullback had he not broken his collarbone. Thankfully David Greene did a great job for us.

    From memory, Steve Carter had a whale of a game during that match

    Not even Viagra could've fixed THAT major issue last week.

    He has not been average in reserve grade, he’s playing in a spine of a team that’s leadinv the comp. He was also good for Samoa considering he’d never played in the nrl and the quality of the Samson team he was outstanding. Ridiculous comment.

    Calling him outstanding in matches where he did nothing is ridiculous. Because the team was weak that somehow makes him outstanding?

    He was average because he didn't do anything that made him standout from those around him or opposite him.

    Tyrone Peachey was part of the spine that took Panthers to first place in the NRL. Would you say he was anything more than average? Cleary was halfback in the NSW team that won the series. Would you say hiz game was anything more than average?

    Luai was a fantastic Under 20s player who had shown very little of that form in NSW Cup. We saw glimpses of it. But he wasn't a standout bashing on the door for selection. He was fantastic for us in his NRL halves debut. But thats not thr form he had going jnto the game. Not even close
