    How will the roster change. Naden to fullback as he's there in reserve grade or Naden to centre seem the two top possibilities?

    Momirovski cops dangerous contact charge

    Panthers centre Paul Momirovski is facing time on the sidelines after being charged with dangerous contact following Thursday's win over Brisbane Broncos.

    The NRL Match Review Committee has issued Momirovski with a grade two dangerous contact (head/neck) charge for a tackle on Broncos playmaker Tom Dearden in the first half at Suncorp Stadium.
    Momirovski is looking at a two-game suspension (225 points) with the early guilty plea, or a three-game suspension (300 points) if he is found guilty by the NRL Judiciary.

    Panthers has until 12pm Saturday to enter a plea to the charge.

    I'd challenge it, the softest shit.

    I expect Naden to fullback or Jennings/Tago to get the call. Naden might be the next best fullback option at the club, and Crichton definitely isn't, so I hope we go that way.

    Wouldn't be disappointed if Sorensen got a go for Eisenhuth. Capewell needs a rest and Leniu needs more minutes.

    Critter/Burton is probably our best centre pairing so I'd probably start moving towards that. Naden at fullback till Dylan is fit

    Given Salmon has been 18th man, I think he's in line before Naden. Maybe May to centre, Salmon to bench. Or Salmon straight into centre.

    I think we probably need to start rotating. JFH looks gassed at the moment. I'd start him from the bench or rest him altogether. Start with Eisenhuth or bring in Sorensen.

    Salmon is super dooper slow. Think any decent backline would carve him up

    Naden fullback Crichton centre is one choice or vice versa.

    Naden to centre if they pick him at all.

    Naden had a good game last week by all reports. He seems like the obvious choice. Putting him at fullback would be interesting. I wouldnt mind shifting Critta to the centres for Naden given he has been playing fullback and he just looks so fit and athletic right now.

    To'o got battered last night. If Momo is cleared then I'd be giving him a rest. Wouldn't hurt to do the same for some of our middles like JFH as well.

    Yeah he was good but isn't in the 21. Not sure he jumps Salmon or Jennings

    I see the 18th man as someone who can cover a few positions. No reason he gets picked ahead of the other options we have at centre

    The other outside back is Jennings. Why not him then?

    It is a good problem to have because so many players in form. I don't know if the wrong option can get taken here

    How's Naden been? Haven't seen him yet this year.

    I think we'll probably know who replaces Momirovski when the NSW Cup team is finalised. I doubt we'll want to risk them picking up an injury or getting suspended.

    Personally, I'd be bringing Naden in at right centre, and leaving everything else the same. Nado and Staines were electric in their 2 games together last year.

    I really think our middle rotation needs to be looked at too.
    We had a 30 minute block last night (and last week) where we only had 1 specialist prop on the field. This included a 6 minute block where our middles were Martin/Yeo/May. Why name 4 props if we're not rotating them 1 for 1?
    Fisher-Harris is our only prop averaging over 40mins a game.

    When we're dominating possession this strategy is fine - but when we're being matched up front, we need the bigger bodies on the field.

    I guess see how he goes tomorrow and will decide then
