    Tend to agree but cricket is a funny game. Rugby League is too. The Eels might play like their 1982 side today and that would change everything.

    Would naturally say Panthers- but maybe it's time for the Eels to win?

    Panthers should do this in a canter. Moses to miss more tackles then Eels score points.

    Poor Whyno checked out at half time in the West Tigers/Parra spoiler thread.

    He started off strong though with some classic comments lol......

    Everyone saying we're going to win easily. That's ominous.

    Yep... I don't like it...

    Eels to win by 1000... (reverse psychology for the win!)

    I'm more nervous when we're favoured to win. Eels have to win sooner or later. Hopefully they wait another week.

    Did anyone actually see how pathetic Parra were yesterday? If it wasn't for the WT caving in because of tiredness,this would have been a cricket score.

    Good thing for the Panthers is that it's forecasted to be 30'. That in itself will play into the hands of Penrith's favour as we won't fold like the WT did.

    Being a local derby,Parra will be in it for the first 15 to 20 mins. But after that,the Panthers will turn on the afterburners to draw away with a comfortable win by 42-14.

    Tigers fell asleep for the last 20 mins which pissed me off. I wanted to see us put them to the sword

    I just can’t see how recent form suggests Parra have a chance in this match up

    I’ll go Penrith 31-12

    I made reference with the WT in respect that they,or most other teams,didn't train in the same conditions as us in the pre-season.

    Thing about yesterdays day which I didn't mention was the humidity which would have been very high with all the storm cloud hanging around which saps the energy righ out of you.
