    I think the way Tamou is playing is all the more reason to keep him. He has been really good for us. Must resign if he is prepared to say for slightly less money.

    Six minutes basically. Sadly. We were certainly the better side for 70 minutes.

    That’s not true. I think almost everyone on here recognises Whare is on his last leg’s but at the same time they respect what he delivers in terms of being solid. Nothing more nothing less.

    We are very excited by this afternoon and it is always great to beat the Sharks but it has to be said they were woeful. I am not trying to take anything away from our performance but the Sharks were frankly woeful even if they had some injury issues during the game which made it difficult for them.

    Man our attack has been threatening to put on a show like that for a month now and it finally clicked. I think the ill discipline flowed off the attack. They were playing loose and confident. Not gonna work against the best sides but nor was grinding out wins with 2 tries all year. Gotta find the balance.

    Huge game for Staines. A few easy pies but a few that someone without speed would have struggled with and the TA for Edwards was just clinical.

    Best centre game from Naden I’ve seen. He’s adding a pass to his game which has pleasantly surprised me. As has Edwards. While Cleary and Api were as involved as ever, it was awesome to see a myriad of other points of attack.

    Two favourite moments. Kikau floats over to the right and chimes into a play. Cleary has been going inside for months and everyone knows it, this time he fakes, the whole Sharks edge freeze and our edge rolls over clinically for Staines last try. We’re building so many traps like that into our attacking arsenal and those are exactly what you need to break down a side like the Roosters that doesn’t make defensive mistakes in a big game.

    Pretty much this. A big difference taking on a Sharks team that ends the game with 14 players and Roosters or Storm in a final.

    The good thing is happening options depth is always good

    A few poor reads in defence but that can be worked on

    I mean for this year. We have yet to replace Jed, Whare etc so won't know until then.

    Mansour and Whare are still decent effort depth players. Throw Burns into that mix once Capewell is back too

    Just watched the replay. Amazing game even allowing for our errors. Really happy right now. To think we have a 19 year old kid who scores 4 on debut and we have another kid in Laurie equally as talented who can’t even get a look in. Amazing.

    4 points if we weren’t feeling sorry for the Knights

    Actually Kilenny, you are taking things away from the performance. The Panthers actually thrashed the Sharks, a typical bogey team in years gone by. Stop being a Kevin and enjoy the win.

    Not at all, I’d say he punched above his weight. He looks line a light breeze might knock him over but he did well wirh those hard runs.

    Staines would have to be the quickest, definitely over 40 and I can only see Dyl keeping up with him over 100.

    If you want to upset a Forbes boy, just refer to Forbes as a suburb of Parkes...

    Give it a rest, nothing wrong with what Kilkenny said. He’s bang on.

    Our attack looked terrific, we actually used our right edge + the addition of an attacking centre. BUT sharks weren’t red hot, had little ball & still scored 4 tries, & Edwards saved our arse a couple of times - granted that’s his job.

    There was four guys in our coaching box last night, I know Ivan, Barret and Ciraldo but who was the last guy? Slightly younger looking with a beard?

    They have done wonders with our attack, compared to last season it’s like we are playing chess instead of checkers. We really move the ball and have some well executed set plays, the Liam Martin try last night was lovely.

    How far, in driving times, is Parkes/Forbes, from Penrith? Sorry for the dumb question, and thanks in advance.

    I know we always talk about Wade Graham being that one that got away, but does he actually do much outside of Origin? He’d be on big money, His stats across the season are pretty bog average. Went missing big time yesterday.

    No I won't. This is a public forum and, like yourself, I am entitled to my viewpoint.

    Important game, needed a break out game in attack, was what I was hoping we'd do to the Tigers or Bunnies and was starting to think might never happen. Defence was sketchy but it is hard to get a measure when you take a big early lead.

    They are about 34 k apart, Forbes being south of Parkes, Google it.
