    2019 was not a good season for us, who knows what may have happened had Api not joined our club and Kenny & Egan been the first choice dummy half’s. I tend to think our season would still have been very good even if Api has been the major difference.

    Size and power can only do so much in the game

    Thanks Christ that some of the member can finally see that he wasn't truly the asset he was hyped to be when with us.

    I sincerely believe he held back both Nathan and Jerome's development at least a year.

    I thought it was really noticeable last night when watching the game. To be honest I hadn't noticed it that much before,

    Maybe because Cleary and Lui have moved on so much.

    I do think there were positives with him being at the club.....but it was time to move him on.

    I credit Maloney, and Jamie, for a lot of help they gave Nathan, and Jerome, to a lesser sense. In the end Maloney, inhibited Nathan's game.

    A few of us were happy to see him leave tbh. I thought we’d improve without him, you could see by the end of last year Nathan was ready to take control.

    Jimmy was a huge defensive liability and gave away heaps of penalties. His form was never consistently good enough to cover that imo, he had his good games for sure bust most of them were pre-origin both seasons.

    Where do we rank Maloney in terms of best imports?

    For me, he’s up there with the likes of Chris Mortimer and Paul Dunn. Players who’s form at Penrith weren’t as good as with their previous clubs but played their part in turning the Panthers into a formidable team.

    Preston & Priddis would arguably be the best imports we have had. Mortimer would be top 5 for sure. He was one tough mofo.

    Prez for sure imo - Love that little bloke - Have a deal with the missus that if the next one is a boy he'll be named after the legend himself.

    My boys are all named after Panthers. Mark 1990, Rhys 2001 & Liam 2020. 2020 was a toss up between Nathan & Liam.

    No premiership which is why he was brought to the Panthers. So Maloney is below 02/03 imports for mine.

    1. Signing Korisau
    2. Signing Barrett

    Appear to have had a gargantuan impact on this team's attack and direction. If we do go on to win the competition I'd rate these two signings right up there.

    We won't know Maloney's impact until we see how Luai and develop. Everyone is forgetting the benefit of him was getting Moylan's contract off our books. We would look very different with his deal

    Jimmy was cooked in his last year for the Sharks. I can see why we took a punt on him but it failed badly. His game in the semi v the sharkies is the single worst performance I can remember from a panther

    He was downright horrible. If he just stepped up once, he'd have kicked the field goal and we'd have been through to the preliminary.

    He DID NOT want the ball. He played so poorly I almost wondered whether he tanked that game. Epic choke.

    He had a major neck injury. He shouldn't have played IMO. He required surgery on it in the off season.

    With the ball in hand he's been sensational.
