The World Club champs by as much as the like.
That's what I would have said if PENRITH won it.
Instead it'll probably be by under 10 points.

Penrith will win but not as strong as you'd expect. They were pretty woeful in the WCC

Hopefully we'll improve significantly on our showing v St Helens because we'll have to.
The Broncos usually make it hard for us, even though we've won the last few encounters they always seem to challenge us, so I'm only going Penrith by 1-12.

Work hard all week, come home on Friday, grab a cold beer, put your feet up to relax in front of the tv - and then you realise it's the f**king broncos on Friday night f**king football again and you wish you were back at work.

The Panthers team is starting to look not as threatening on paper as previous years. I imagine they'll be smarting from the WCC and cant see another performance that bad. Edwards back will help as will Sorenson on the bench. Hoping Garner can put in a better showing.

If Brisbane had Walsh Id give them an outside shot, Cobbo at fullback will get exposed like Cleary does to Latrell.

Pennies by 12.

Agree.

Kiks and Api going isn't the issue.

The sub standard replacements are.

For all the shit Cleary got for the WCC not much be can do with the worst hooker in a trophy game since Russell Aitken.

Aitken's last NRL game was the 2008 GF where IMO he is the main reason a loaded Storm side couldn't score a point.

Panthers by 16.

Martin and Edwards are no way match fit and a couple of players will not be up to scratch as far as combinations are concerned. So the Broncos will have a handy lead...for a while, until that Panther magic kicks into gear.

Panthers 28-12. Cleary FTS, which will give him 50 tries, and if he converts his try, 500 goals.
