    I can tell you as a fact it was always promised back to him for round 19 from the begining.

    Penrith Panthers ‏@PenrithPanthers "Luke probably doesn't want to go through the pain of helping to rebuild a club" - Gus

    Why would he want to stay at the club though when your boss says that about you

    They are losing better players than what they have coming in. Aside from an unhappy jennings, their senior players are Coote (who was dropped), Walsh, Simmons, and Newton...

    That's why they will not improve.

    Heard that before too from another player who left recently who I can tell you won't be back at all to ever fulfill that one liner.

    About the Cleary-Gould regime. Cleary has lost more games than he's won as coach. Gould hasn't had a big role at a club for a long time before this gig.

    Just sayin...

    Their halves are still there. Losing the heart and soul of the club. Loosing their 2nd best back. I have no doubt that things will get get worse before they get better unless they sign a star to take the spot Lewis left.

    I agree with every word of this.

    They're not making the 8 in 2013.

    Look at their Windsor Wolves and NYC sides. There are good things on the horizon for Penrith.

    Do you read what you type. Didn't you say the panthers were more chance of winning a comp than the cows.

    Off your head.

    In 2014. With Lewis and Thurston.

    Now they're going backwards.

    Sandor Earl looks like another mistake they've made. Add Lewis to it.

    They made some solid signings but the players they've lost for 2013 are at least as good.

    Thanks for your response. Fair enough, time will tell I guess. I think they will improve simply because Cleary will get a rocket up the youngsters. A lot of people saw no improvement in your club this time last year, but you guys are sitting in a good position.

    Gee there's a lot of experts around here.

    Point is if Lewis wanted to go there's not much to be done about it.

    The real question is why did he want to leave?

    Sadly. I thought that with Lewis. Terrible coach. Gould p!ssing players off. Not 1 player has improved this year. No reason to think next year will be different.

    Lewis & Petero. Both played for numerous rep teams. Every coach & player that played with them loved them. Yep Gould got rid of both. Shameful display.

    I wonder who will get Luke Lewis, Roosters or Union.

    One of those two and I will not be surprised at all.

    Who else would be in the market? Newcastle? The Queensland clubs are reasonably well stocked...

    I do not think it will be a Western Sydney club giving Gould's comments.

    This

    for what its worth, this would be next years back row

    11. Lewis Brown
    12. Sika Manu
    13. Blake Austin
    14. Vaipuna Tia-Kilifi
    Add Nathan Smith in there somewhere, it is not too bad a back row
