    I am a Kiks fan but Capewell helps the defence so much more. He is great at chasing grubbers so even if running it we are worse off. Rolling it into the goals is never a bad thing

    Sure, but kiks has the scare factor, he’s going to smash you into the next world.

    That flip was so unnecessary. It wasn’t a dog act, just a prank, but the penalty is too severe.

    He is also going to miss simple tackles at times. His suspensions have all been from lazy attempts

    Sua looked like he picked up an injury last night. He played on but was very quiet after it happened. He is probably their best forward. It looked like some kind of knee or ankle injury, and you’d have to expect he will be less than 100% next week.

    Walker was also pretty quiet last night compared to previous weeks. He also picked up a lower leg injury against the Knights and looks like he is still carrying it.

    They have a few minor injuries. Graham's is the only one which can't be needled up.

    Good luck Panthers fans. If Souths lose a 3rd consecutive prelim final I'll probably go MIA and think about my life choices so I'm getting in early to wish you luck and hope it's a cracker of a game.

    Walker simply hates the big stage

    Bennett may not have been watching Panthers (yeah whatever old man, don't try your mind games on us) but his players certainly have, when Reynolds was interviewed after the game, he seemed to know a fair bit on how Nath and Romey are going.

    Kikau is a huge loss and Penrith’s attack will suffer without him. Also Penrith haven’t played a sudden death final yet and Souths have won two sudden deaths and in both games they ran down their opponents. The pressure of sudden death can affect young players and the best of teams. It will be interesting to see how Penrith react under this type of pressure. But all being equal, Penrith will have to score 30 plus points to beat the Rabbitohs.

    The bunnies also have not played a good side in sudden death the knights and a injury riddled eels.And the reality if Moses gets the goal we have a completely different game

    We already did beat them, with almost the same line ups. 4 tries to 2.
    Both teams have improved, especially Penrith’s defence!

    Nathan poos on Reynolds from a great distance. Also a few weeks back Bennett gave us a wrap, he is telling pork pies.

    Yes that’s all true but Souths did put 60 points on the Roosters the week before the roosters nearly ran the Panthers down and if not for a bad pass by Josh Morris to an unmarked Keary in the last minutes of that game, souths could of been playing the Roosters next week.

    Yes the panthers did beat an out of form Souths team but only got to the lead after two Souths players were sin binned in the last 20 minutes.

    Penrith lead that game 8-0 in the first half, and despite conceding some tries, never gave up the lead at any point. The score also flattered Souths given that Cleary missed 3 goals.

    My point is, the panthers have had a rolls royce ride during the proper season in 2020 and all of that form counts for nothing in a do or die sudden death match.

    It was 12- 6 at 68 minute mark before two souths players were sin binned but you did play much better than Souths on the day . However, it was Cody and Latrells first game back since the covid break.

    An out of form Souths team? You thrashed the Titans and Warriors the 2 weeks before you played us.
