One word:

f**king hum dinger. This one has the potential to be more exciting than the dressage at the Olympics.


First Grade
Cleary very unlikely. Yeo very unlikely. Fisher-Harris out. Koroisau out. May and To'o doubtful. It's almost the side we fielded against the Tigers.

Fortunately we don't need to win this game, but it would help if we don't lose by too many, so lets hope the defence is sorted. Congrats to the Storm on the Minor Premiership. They deserve it.

How many of these over hyped contests end up being a fizzer? I mean, it could be like Round 3 or the Storm may be up 30-0 at half time.

This is really just a new rivalry - pre 2020 we had just beaten them twice after 2005.

Still, it's 1 v 2, worthy of some hype.


We'll possibly be missing Cleary, Api, To'o, Yeo and JFH - That's way too much talent to have out against Melbourne - I can see this being a massive blow out with us getting at least 40 points put on us.

Check this one out.

This isn't a game of footy, oh no. This is a title fight, a certified humdinger. And not just any humdinger, this one? This one's special.

The most anticipated Humdinger of all time. Steve Smith v Virat Kohli. Mohammed Ali v Joe Frazier. The Second World War. The eternal battle on the ethereal planes between good and evil. They all pale into insignificance compared to this.

This one has Panthers!

Only on fox league

I can see we're being written off by a lot of people not just for this game (which I agree we are clearly outsiders in) but also the comp, just because of our form without key players. With no Cleary, Api, JFH and Yeo we're not the same team. People say Storm get the job done regardless of whose out, but that's an extremely rare ability for which the Storm deserve praise rather than other teams should be criticised for and it's a testament to how good a coach Craig Bellamy is.

Nonetheless I'm very confident in Penrith's ability with a full strength side and the record shows we haven't lost this year when at full strength. Hopefully we can really compete or even upset Melbourne this weekend but if not, hopefully we don't get pumped too badly and we can reset ourselves when Nathan, Api and Yeo return.

Last game showed that Api is a much bigger loss for the Panthers than Cleary. Melbourne will score too many for Penrith to overcome.

Hey guys did you know the Panthers are missing some players? Just in case you hadnt seen or read anything from a Panthers fan

Storm to do what they do, get the job done regardless of who they have in or out with no whining about it
Little brother syndrome.
