Panthers troubles leading into our match

Unread post by MacDougall » Sun 29 Jun, 2014 7:23 pm

So Soward injured and the Panthers put in a clanger. Pretty fortunate for us. Tbh I think Penrith are performing a little bit above themselves this year so far. They've had a lovely draw. I think we'll stitch them up. In fact I reckon we'll spank them. 36 -16.

Yep. Without all those players. I feel like all those posts that were saying things like "maybe Potter has been waiting to do yada yada" that I thought were ridiculous were kind of proven true the other night when he swapped sides and had Anasta and Brooks playing both sides. Anasta really stepped up and having Anasta anywhere near his best out of nowhere adds a fairly remarkable element to our team. I think we'll slice them up early and often and their points will come late. It'll look a lot like the Eagles and Rabbits games.

No chance. We're ordinary without Farah and Woods and the Panthers are solid. If we win, it won't be by much.

The panthers have had a very good draw no doubt ,after watching the game today they don't seem to me to be in any trouble they played a better team on the day. Soward they can live without short term but they do have a very well balanced side,if Potter gets the selections right this week it could be a close affair.From what I have seen in the Premier league side there are defiantly some likely types that could do a dame good job , hopefully Potter will not stay the safe course with a few that are selected when Woods and Robbie are not around as this has not worked .

I agree with ya Mac ! I'd feel even more confident if we were playing at the Riff !
The pamfers have been pretenders so far this year IMO . I can't remember the last time they beat us ?

And they've got us without Farah, Woods, Simona, Tedesco and maybe Sue. Lets look at things with both eyes for a second, is the side we field any better then the majority of sides they have beat this yr?

This Panthers team loves to throw the ball around and can score points. It will be a big step up from the Raiders game in terms of speed. We'll have to watch James Segeyaro out of dummy half. Without Woods and Farah that might be a problem area.

I think we are a chance to win if we get up in their faces, put pressure on them and play a strong, mistake free, forward dominated game. If we can get Taupau and Gavet charging forward over the advantage line and back it up with some smart kicking, we might grind our way to another narrow victory. I'd love to see a couple of experiments regarding selections, including Cherrington at hooker and Moses on the bench. I've already said on the Team v Penrith thread that Lulia and Luani should be ignored in favour of trying some new blood. If will be a mistake to try and play expansively as we don't have the personnel to pull it off.

That's what Canberra and their master coach Stuart were thinking throughout Saturday's match - until Anasta kicked his field goal that is.

Agree. We struggle big time to score points and without Farah, Woods, Tedesco, Simona...We'll be lucky to cross the tryline IMO.

We are due for a thrashing It's that time of the year and I would rather the Panthers thrash us then the Dogs,Eagles or Roosters...

Umm just this weekend, current standings, Warriors 8th beat Panthers 2nd, Sharks 16th beat Broncos 7th, Cowboys 11th beat Rabbits 4th.

Don't read too much into ladder position. Every week is a new proposition.

We always seem to match up well against the Panthers

Big ask but I've seen weirder things happen

If we keep Penrith under 14 points we will win

Simple
