    This is going to be huge. We need to belt them in the middle to win this. We cant let their halves into the game at all.

    Braith on fox saying Panthers fans would be nervous. No Braith unlike Eels we have a forward pack and a real halves pair.

    Won't be easy though.

    Bring it on - rush defence and don’t give them time, make them work it out from their end and clean up their kicks with our back 3, play it on our terms.

    The normal attention that may make our boys nervous may not be there.I think the papers are going to head line Sailor and Jennings good for us
    Souths will also be the darlings of the media .The underdog panthers I like that

    Hopefully Api plays at their "markers" early & we get the six again calls. It will force them to be square at marker & open up the middle for us.

    That short side wrap around play is awesome to watch but Cook needs to be well marked.

    For all the punters on here, here's the odds Panthers $1.50, the Rabbitohs $2.65

    That will have to shorten surely? Tempted to buy those Rabbitoh's odds and sell them when it gets a little more even. Come game time I'd have to say it will more likely be Panthers at around $1.70 or $1.80 and Rabbits at around $2.30-40.

    No that sounds about right. 1 v 6. We are fresh so I can't see it moving

    Said it before and I’ll say it again the betting odds mean nothing.

    This is what happened last time we played them, so much so that they started favourites, the last time we were not favourite at kickoff. I think things will be different this time. This side has passed every test put to it.

    You have to be a fool to bet with your heart rather than your brain. A lot of people would have lost money last time these sides met, surely they remember.

    Ha, Wayne's pulling our leg. He's studied Penrith with a microscope. I'm sure I heard him mid-season full of admiration and praise. Next thing you know they've upped the tempo and risk taking and are winning games. The poor-man's Panthers.

    I’d rather be the underdogs going into this game.

    I still remember us being the raging hot favourites against the Dogs back in the 2014 PF. Ended up :poop::poop: the bed.

    Just like Easts form, we have to honestly look inward from a perspective in how our side handled the pressure from last week's game. Some of the antics we got up to in that game where unforgivable given most of those stupid mistakes were near our line.

    Coach Cleary has had plenty of time to sort this out, but I still can't help thinking the fact that our team is so full of brilliance, it also has the dumb factor in spades.

    Get back to what last worked for us in the Dogs game and hopefully we kick on from there.
