    From reading these pages I’d guess that our performance was about as convincing as Gould’s version of events?

    The Gould Panthers won, that’s disappointing

    Penrith turn the race for 4th into a two team race on the back of 3 very unconvincing, but sensational last ditch wins.

    You'd think if they and the Raiders swapped their last 5 minutes of each game Raiders would be top 4 and Panthers trying to avoid the spoon.

    Titans continue to play ok, and just lose. They just lack the toughness in defense needed to make the finals. Hopefully they can improve in that area with a few new faces next year.

    Panthers look horrible for most of their last 5 or so hours of football, but wins on the board are all that really count. They are either getting a second chance or home final, so have every chance of pushing deep into the finals.

    At their best they can win 3 finals in a row and take the premiership.

    Was a really improvement on recent weeks. Only had to make up 10 points in the last 10.

    (Both teams were terrible though overall)

    Hook worked them hard and got them fit over the summer. That's why they hated him.

    As I said last week, and the week before, if it were a fluke it wouldn't happen every week.

    They certainly finish with running. Unlike Ricky's hurtin' boys, who look puffed after 70.

    You'd hope that wasn't the reason Hook was hooked. Would be a big backwards step if players rebelled for being punished into shape.

    That's what most of us outsiders suspect.

    Certainly the team is on track to make top 4, has talent across the board, heaps of depth, and play exciting football. No football related reasons seem to make sense for sacking Griffin.

    I like Panthers chances against Roosters if its 1st vs 4th again.
