    I actually thought it was really poor from Ricky to out him out there. The guy is a half, at a stretch a hooker. He's probably never played wing in his life.

    Yeah you don't like to shuffle the spine but surely the better option is getting Wighton out onto the wing, maybe slot Austin in at the fullback and Hingano six...in a high pressure situation it was asking for trouble IMO.

    Hingano is better then what we’ve seen from him at the raiders.

    Was a dour and I take nothing from the win.

    I’ll add if there were any accountability in the refereeing ranks, Perenara would be having a rest next week.

    But we all know that won’t happen.

    I am not 100 percent sure on what interchanges we had but he should have moved croker to the wing, bateman or sia to centre, havali into the backrow and hingano to hooker. That is not idea but better than what he did

    A fair result would have been a draw after extra time,although I wouldn't have begrudged a Raiders win. On form,we should have had an easy win. But with the conditions as they were,you can't write off the Raiders at home. One notable point with the Panthers is that after a bye,we are always rusty. We play Easts next week. Need to sharpen up right across the board.

    Another option is to play Austin at fullback, Wighton at centre and Hingano at 5/8

    Or Austin at centre and Hingano at 5/8

    Both options have Croker playing wing

    All options that mean Hingano is playing in a position he has played before and nobody is playing in a completely new position

    AS others have said, Raiders were cruel by injury...but the positional shifts were a disaster. There just had to be a better reshuffle.

    In hindsight,it was probably a big ask for Cleary to play. He wasn't himself out there.So was RCG.

    Another reason to go back to just 1 referee IMO. The quality just isn't there. We have 5 or 6 decent whistle blowers, not 16. That merkin Perenara should not be refereeing first grade, he's been shit house for seasons.... Worse ref than he was a player if you can believe it....

    Panthers showed good character. The composure of their halves always kept them in the game, and even when both Maloney and Clearys kicking game was going dead a lot, it still showed good direction as you could see what they were trying to achieve.

    Thats just poor from the Raiders to realise they needed to hold onto the ball, and continue to lose it. I'd also like to see the Raiders play a bit more patient at times which would probably make them boring but this...'score off every set' mentality is surprising that, they as professionals, continue to get sucked into pushing the pass. Yes it worked wonderfully a few years back with the on-fire Leipana era but thats when they were ON FIRE. They just gotta value set completion more.

    Got home late and was only able to catch the last five minuets of the game, but in those five minutes I whitnessed Henry manage to f**k up three crucial calls, two of which were against the Raiders.

    With a smile on my face I then logged onto LU to come indulge in skeepes referee meltdown only to find him posting plausible, well written responses.

    Disappointed Skeepe. Disappointed.

    For what its worth, I found these youtube videos of the worst NRL reffing displays and they were BAD. Worse than any decision tonight. Like you could CLEARLY see the stuff ups. Thing is - Perenara is not in any of those videos.

    I know its video ref but the try where Austin raked it 24 times has to be up there. Even if you call loose carry Blake still knocks on for a scum
