    Penrith are looking really rocky at the moment, while the Warriors are playing the best footy they've played in years. Can only see this going one way.

    Warriors by at least 14. Happy to go into a game with very little expectations though.

    I was thinking that it sucks that we are forced to be without Maloney, Cleary and Peachey for this game but then again, they've offered little in the last couple of games anyway.

    Warriors I reckon. Penrith in a bit of a slump.

    Not exactly saying much here.
    More than a bit. But we're facing the side who played us into form at the same ground last year. The emergence of Tyrone May as a genuine NRL superstar is imminent.

    Although it's now official that we won't have Peachy,Maloney & Cleary,there is centre Blake returning,as well as May and Liam Martin getting the nod,with Letoa having a game under his belt. It will still be a very hard ask,but you never know.

    On current form minus rep players this game could get very ugly for the Panthers.

    Warriors by lots. Penrith are in a big hole right now. A few more weeks of pain for the pennies unless the Warriors don't bother to turn up. Which could happen.

    Very hard game for us to win and need to score more trys then Warriors as we also don't have any notable goal kickers for this game.

    hoping for a massive upset us by 2

    Warriors missing Pulu, Harris, and Afoa from the pack which leaves us a little more one dimensional up front and if Panthers are going to do it that's where they'll target.

    If the forwards cancel each other out then you would expect the Warriors spine gets them home.

    Game certainly isn't as cut and dried as some think.

    I would be shocked by anything less than Warriors murdering the Panthers. Warriors side is so much stronger it's not funny.

    This week the key missing players are:.

    1. Edwards (injured)
    2. Mansour (injured)
    3. Peachey (origin)
    6. Maloney (origin)
    7. Cleary (origin)
    8. RCG (injured)
    9. Wallace (injured, forced to retire)
    10. Browne (injured, forced to retire)
    14. Mckendry (injured)

    This has forced us to use reserve grade wingers who are stinking it up... deadset past few games they have made us miss the glory days of Adrian Purtell and Brad Tighe. Warriors wingers are going to have a field day here. Get on one or both for a hat trick.

    Reserve grade halves who have played about 15 minutes of NRL between them this year... and Jerome Luai is not even that good in reserve grade. Tyrone May is special though. But its his first NRL game since last year.

    Even worse than who is missing though. Is the guys like Merrin and Tamou who are not putting in to lift the team when we are depleted. These merkins are on holiday.

    James Tamou in his past 4 games is averaging a whopping 75m per game. Trent Merrin not much better having run for less than 100 metres in 3 of our last 5 games. But its ok... theyre only our 2 most experienced and highest paid forwards.
