    I don't mind Kenny as cover for Api, just surprised Crichton starting. I am happy he is though.

    Any word on what’s happened to Naden? Is he injured? His ability to score try from kicks will he missed.

    Kenny allows Api to drop to the halves if needed. Also can cover pack if guys get tired

    Good point about Api providing cover for the halves. Hopefully, it won't be required.

    Interesting changes. Naden is clearly more potent than Whare however I'm not sure you can just replace one with the other.

    Crichton deserves a starting position. I bet he will have a blinder against the Knights right edge.

    Naden I don't rate in the centres. But I hope he wasn't dropped. He was better than Whare and he would be better on the wing than Mansour.

    He was also a fullback and would probably offer more than Aekins at 1.

    Crighton is more than capable of being a threat off a kick.

    Does Chrichton kick for goal? Perhaps that the reason?

    Crighton running off Kiks is going to be fun to watch.

    Mansour and Whare are so bad at finishing.

    Line wide open and Mansour had nothing.

    Our attack plan should just be “throw to kikau”

    What's with these haircuts? Kik and Kori late for training?

    I know our spine is affected too but the Knights are really on their knees. This should end up a comfortable win.

    My god that's a Penrith end to a half. Soft penalty into soft try.

    That was absolutely f**ked. Penrith should be rolling over these bastards with the amount of troops they’ve lost. Instead they let in one of the softest tries of the season.

    Really some things just never ever change at Penrith, 10 seconds before half time and we let them in for a very soft try under the posts. Considering they lost Pearce, Watson and Glasby and we have had all the ball I am concerned we aren’t in front by considerably more.

    Agreed. The fact that Mansour didn’t score with the line open is very concerning.
