    Welch would be a starter at 90% of clubs, which is likely what he’d want. He wouldn’t be at Parra.

    OK, so you can't count SBW as he hasn't been in their roster so that is a stretch.
    They were down 14-0 when they lost their halfback and Storm didn't score after Keary left the field.

    I can't see the Panthers losing any more than one game between now and the finals.

    I would say I'd prefer to beat them at full strength but really I just want to beat the merkins. I don't care how many disadvantages they have.

    Sure but he will be part of it.

    Anyhows I won't be riding the Roosters off based on last month. Morris had been there best player. They had most the forward pack out last night.

    And very impressive in his interview after the match. The way he talked about their responsibilities due to Covid puts the whole Broncos team to shame who appear not to care. Much about their games lately.

    No Cam Smith, no Cam Munster, no worries. Storm were impressive, played with speed and aggression.
    Next week we need to do the same.
    In defence need to move up quickly and keep our line straight, gang tackle and stop the offloads and scramble to the edges. Watch for their wide passes to the edges.
    In attack, attack with speed in numbers, keep offloading and passing going and where possible short kicks thru the line might break their defence up. Running from dummy half might be another ploy. Whatever, we need to play with speed and no one out running otherwise they'll eat us up. Go Parra!

    It's very exciting. Almost as exciting as looking at the ladder and seeing we have more competition points than all 3 Derpland teams added together.

    My mates are all Roosters fans. Admitted their season over but took great pride in saying Panthers have it won already.

    Living in Roosters homeland is difficult at times.

    One of them laughed so hard when I said I believed we can win it. Matched with “not with your halves you can’t”.

    Please oh please footy gods, let me shove that premiership trophy right up their arses! I will be f**king unbearable if we win!

    Warriors defended really well for back to back to back to back sets. Had to crack eventually.

    Penrith are ruthless and very patient in the attacking zone.
