    Panthers: Nathan Cleary (knee) is back training, but he’s more of a chance for next week. Jack Hetherington (dangerous contact) is facing suspension, while Trent Merrin (broken finger) is facing a stint on the sideline. With nine players currently out, the biggest casualty ward in the NRL, coach Anthony Griffin will be forced to delve deep into his roster. Nick Lui-Toso, Kaide Ellis and Corey Waddell are all contenders to come into the 17.

    Hetherington has take the plea and will miss one week. No news on Leota as of yet.

    Ellis is now in the 30 according to Gus in his podcast, so he'll go in ahead of the others.

    Crazy depth. NSW Cup had quality I just wasn't sure they could handle FG so well before the season

    Tui-Loso is too. He and Ellis will come in barring taking a chance with Cleary or something. I think Merrin, Cleary and May won't be pushed for this week

    It wouldn't surprise me if Hook named one of those 3 on the reserve list. Extremely unlikely to play but either mind games from him or the fact we are running out of top 30 players to name!

    Yeah May is fit but I think will play NSW Cup before FG. Merrin could be taped up and atleast tackle but I can't see it name to 2 atleast

    Tom Eisenhuth or Liam Martin could also come in. Eisenhuth played lock for the NSW Cup side on the weekend.

    I rate Liam Martin but he is a backrower. That works if we start Ellis at prop and have Tamou and Leota off the bench

    I think this game will be more of a danger game than the Cows. Brown has them playing genuine attacking footy and Ponga is just icing the cake. Ponga will destroy our makeshift edges (stupid injuries).

    Must win game. Otherwise we could slid down the ladder. A few hard games coming up before the bye.

    Even just Cleary back. Moves Peachey to centres and CHN to the bench already stronger just with that one player back. Being at home helps I don't see us losing at home this season

    I mean if we drop this week next 2 at home with Cleary and Merrin back. This week will be almost impossible to win given the squad we have...Though this is usually when we go well

    Will Yeo play? I think our backrow will dominate Newy
