    There was plenty of Parra 2001 with that Panthers performance.

    Panthers were managed back into the game. It happens all the time when one side gets a big lead.

    Well I'm not going to pretend I predicted it. But I did say I thought their season looked a lot like our 2001 season. I certainly didn't expect them to make it close though.

    I was thinking.

    Had we beaten Souths I genuinely feel we beat the Panthers how poorly they played against Souths. Had they done the same.......

    And tonight in the wet it would of been a 50/50. Our offloads may of proven the difference.

    Parra scored some of the best tries in the final series. Id love to see a highlight reel but we put in some real crackers.

    Shame how we went out. Had Ferguson and MJ been available.......

    Our side was short priced favourites to win GF. Penrith where outsiders.

    It shit me cause we have the plays. And our execution is good. But our game management isn't there.

    Marata was our only go forward off bench.

    Stones future might be questionable. I like the guy but unless we carry 3 powerfull forwards he has no role.

    That is true, but on paper we had no right to be favourites. The Knights were full of current Origin players. We had a few future Origin players in our team but in 2001 they were all well short of big game experience.

    Just like the 2020 Panthers we had form not class.

    Ivan lost this game for Penrith, why change Naden and May! The combos were working for 17 weeks, you don’t change a winning team.
    Penrith have been an attacking team all year and the last two weeks he has gone defensive and they have looked their worst all year!
    Horrible coaching decision, one of BA made I’m sure he would have deathriders everywhere
