    Regardless of which halves play it comes down to our forward pack. If they are as awesome as they were last week then we have a real good chance but I obviously expect the Sharks to be far less timid than the Warriors so this game's a whole different proposition than last week.

    I'm saying us by 4 because I'm just hoping we might finally beat the Sharks for a change

    Our spine of Aikens, May, Luai and Katoa has 36 NRL Games while Cronulla's Holmes, Moylan, Townsend and Brailey has 360. We really need our pack to stand up again to give our rookie spine a chance here.

    This will say more about Cronulla than Penrith.

    Interesting fact - The Panthers have never lost when Isaah Yeo has been captain

    Suspect when the draw is done 9 is offered its choice of FTA games for a price per game, whereas previously it was included in the deal. Am I right?

    Even at the last off season, this was two top 8 sides up against a top 4 side and a wooden spooner, although the Knights were expected to improve by about as much as they have.

    Last week's Panthers side was the youngest and least experienced of all clubs for the season. With the debutant Aekins (age 20) replacing DWZ (age 22, 88 games) both records will be surpassed if the selected 1-17 plays.

    I'm not bothered about CH:9 because I watch the Fox League coverage anyway. Except maybe when Matt Nable is commentating.. 'He's gonna score!...oh no wait he's been held up'...

    I thought I knew bad commentary but Nable showed me how wrong I was. Can't even get players names right.

    Jarome Luai is also undefeated in the NRL.
    Nathan Cleary is undefeated in Origin

    The two best halves in the world right now. Jimmy Maloney goes alright too.


    Both those undefeated records can potentially end soon. So had to get in now. :p

    Every League fan perfers Fox. The Casuals don't care and it is why FTA should have the better games. Rarely happens though

    Outside of Origin my TV hasnt been on 9 at all this year. Nearly got caught out last year not realising Origin wasn't on Fox.

    The one time kicking off an hour late was a good thing.
