Roosters ravaged by injury. But their squad still looks about as good as Panthers thanks largely to their backline still having Tedesco,Tupou and Manu. Nevermind the fact B Moz, J Moz, Sualii, Smith, Ikavalu etc. Are unavailable.

Honestly their depth is quiet amazing. For a club that isn't known for development they are second only to Storm for covering injuries. Clearly they're not close to their absolute best. But they're impressive most weeks with who is missing.

Panthers on the other hand go from looking invincible at full strength to fringe top 8 very quickly.

Your back line does look weak without To'o and Crighton. Keighran and Copley are hardly inspiring in our back line though.

Obviously Cleary missing is huge but Penrith still have the 2 best halves on the field but they just haven't clicked for some reason. For us, Walker is coming along but has a ways to go and he and Hutch seem to have worked out a decent combo. We are also relying on a tonne of ball playing from Teddy, Manu and Rads.

I really like the 11-13 battle, quality on both sides.

Our halves have only had 2 games together. May was the 7 then Luai out. The backrow look nice and even. Hopefully they let Radley and TPJ belt each other

Will be won through the backline being our centre pairing really concerns me as Momo and Derpwell are noted arm grabbers in defense.

Toss of the coin if the weather is poor.

Gimme a P, gimme an E, gimme an N etc.

Get your mind out of the gutter you know what it spells.

Roosters are getting taken to brown town this weekend.
