    With luai proving last night he can cover dummy half well i dont think we need egan on the bench get kenny to start and luai the cover for halves and hooker he can be dynamic when the forwards tire.

    Mostly yes. But he did have a good game there on one occassion and he's really only had a few cracks.

    Hes a better utility than Egan as he can cover the whole spine. Egan may be slighyly better at hooker. But Luai would improve the more he plays there and offers halves cover too.

    This is f**king bullshit....dragging out the way it has. Our squad is effectively 29 and we are down somewhere around 150-200K on our cap.

    I think you might be getting mixed up with Laurie? Leinu is a prop.

    You misunderstand me. I was thinking instead of what is essentially 2 utilities(Egan, Luai) and 2 props, we have 1 utility/Hooker and 3 props on the bench.

    This is how the legal system works. It takes time, and he's certainly not getting any special treatment due to being a footballer. I can't believe anyone expected this to be over and done with so soon.

    I'm sure that Panthers have been in contact with the NRL to discuss our options re: squad management. However, I'm not sure it's in Panthers or Tyrone's best interests to make those discussions public, unless it is to announce some kind of exemption.

    The BS part of it is the NRL's new rule that is forcing this situation onto us. We should be getting compensated somehow for it.

    The contract should just come straight off the salary cap and be paid by the nrl when this situation occurs. Player gets paid but it doesn’t count in our cap. It’s up to the club to manage the cap and make sure there’s room for the players contract to come back into the cap if and when the player is aloud to return.

    Saw this on a police vehicle at Fuzhou railway station in China this morning. It is fabricated metal, not a sticker.

    Apparently the Panthers may have a new kit supplier for 2020.
