    Post match conference said the carry off was a photo opportunity if he chooses to retire after next weeks game.

    He looks like he could still go another season. But there is always one to many.

    I don’t have any doubt that Penrith are the best team... if they beat Souths they should win... but Melbourne are a huge chance, and I think would roll through Souths if they upset Penrith

    Smith is astonishing though... the work he does, his leadership, calmness etc.

    Well, I am cheering for whoever wins tonight, like everyone else in the world.

    Raiders shat the bed. Papalii. Rapana. Croker. Wighton. Whitehead. All uncharacteristically ordinary.

    Souths look short of puff without the week off.

    Panthers could run away with it now.

    12-6, half-hour gone.

    Given they lost Mitchell and the other dramas Souths have been incredibly impressive

    That said, Penrith can be the team of the next 5 years if they can keep this group together

    20-16, final.

    Panthers held on, which is amazing as Souths looked buggered from about the tenth minute.

    2020 GF: Penrith v Melbourne.

    Salary cap always makes that tough.
    Melbourne has managed to do it.

    I think we all have to be cheering loudly for Penrith in the big one.

    Melbourne loss = Cameron Smith decides to go around for one more year = Brandon Smith chucks his toys and moves back to NZ.

    Nostradumarse has spoken!
