    After seeing all the video's posted from the club so far it has given us great insight into how we are trained and the resources we have as a club. It all looks very impressive with first class technology and facilities and some very knowledgeable staff.
    There will be no excuses if we dont start the season as one of the fittest, fastest, strongest teams in the comp !
    We seem to have a very good bunch of background staff at the club these days which is great to see.

    I guess Ivan Cleary , Matt Cameron or maybe the Board is responsible. I have no idea as I'm not part of the club, I'm just a member and a fan !
    What point are you trying to make ?

    There is going to be one very long chapter about Phil Could in the next Panthers book. Whenever it's released.

    Need to win another premiership first.

    I think if you look back we really started trying to ramp up our social media under Gus.

    This preseason stuff has been brilliant so far so someone at the club currently deserves a lot credit for the idea and for pulling it off so well. You have to give credit to the coaching staff for allowing the guys to film and interview during preseason also.

    Gus for the facility’s, Ivan and Matty C for the staff. (Assuming this is a serious question and not silly game playing)

    Her LinkedIn seems to indicate that she finished up in October.

    No new gig mentioned however

    I wondered that when she wasn't on the xmas injury update video.
    Maybe she is just on holidays.

    Someone on FB claimed they saw her down the street in her Panthers 2020 gear.

    Yet she doesn't come up on the Panthers website under the coaches. Only Pete Green does as senior physio.

    On LinkedIn Peter Green is the senior physio who assists the Head Physio. Whoever that now is.

    Maybe she has left or taken another role at the club.

    Well, it's a shame if she's gone. Krystal was competent and appeared to have a good rapport with the players. She was also a good role model for young girls.
    -possibly on extended leave though as posted above.

    It is what it is I guess.

    New regime, new ideas and new staff in key positions.

    You can view it as change for change sake I guess but at the end of the day the proof will be in the pudding.

    All the fancy videos on line from the main Panthers web site will mean jack shit if the NRL side don’t deliver results on the field.

    Exactly my thoughts too. I don’t care about the flashy marketing, as entertaining as it might be.

    Gone sadly. A decision I don't agree with.
    She was one of the most caring and hard working people at the club. With a significant expertise in physical therapy.

    Pete Green is now the new head physio.

    Nothing to do with cost cutting.
