    Defence is the x factor when teams are level on f/a.

    It goes ladder points then f/a then points percentage. Based on percentage Penrith are ahead of the Dragons

    They aren't likely to miss the eight, but they could finish in the lower half of the eight, which given the way their forwards were dominated tonight, wouldn't auger well.

    The Penrith forwards are relentless though. Throughout the injury crisis the pack was still there and we won games. Give us our game managers and outside backs...

    Sorry,I meant on comp points...then if it is the same f/a diff,the defensive points come into effect.

    The sides would have been picked last week. Frizell is certain, DeBelin certain if fit, Vaughan likely, Aitken likely, Hunt certain if fit, Mc Innes very possible, Sims possible. Rep sides don't get changed on one game.

    Hello mate and GongPanther well that was just absolutely brilliantly devestating great like wowzzaaaa.

    Comp favourites and benchmark and that'll show in the odds tomorrow lads!

    What a team you've got there and these young kids and you're missing about 8 blokes to injury aye??

    I hope for a Penrith and Bunnies GF guys..... I'd be happy to lose to you blokes!!!

    Of course we can be excited but we have to both come out of origin without key injuries!!! That will be key!!

    I'd love nothing more though than to see the Dragons keep sinking!!!!

    Still a long way to go and we can't write off tough teams like Storm or Rorters......

    Feels weird being on top of the ladder. But you have to be mindful that two losses in a row,and it all changes. The big worry I had about this game was that in the past,when we had a spell of more than 7 days between games ( our last game was last Friday week), we always tend to put in a poor performance.

    But this performance is one for the ages.And I wouldn't be surprised if Yeo gets a spot on the Blues bench.

    Good game, Dragons. Was working the game and could hear the Panthers fans going off as if we just won the game to get into the grand final.

    Wighton is the worst fullback in the competition. Outside of dog shots he offers nothing. Wouldnt crack the Panthers reserves.

    Mary just isn't cut out for the job. We're fading fast for the second year in a row. Faded badly in 2015 as well, but managed to squeak into 8th. Remind me again what the definition of insanity is?

    It's called passionate elation. When you have a win in a game with the build-up that it had,you simply lose all your inhibitations after a convincing win such as that.

    I feel envious that you were there.
