Voldemort can't start Api from the bench next week. They had nothing until Api came on.
They had the same strategy against Parra in week 1. Seems to be working. Parra will try to blow them out early before Koroisau comes on.

They just absorb whatever the opposition throws at them early.... Even 12 0 down with three disallowed they never looked stressed or panicked... Confidence is sky high

They have consistent players across the park, are well disciplined and they have players who can make things happen out of nothing like To'o and Kikau.

They are a special team.

Think it was Nathan that said the multiple weeks off made them come out rusty and only started finding their groove towards end of first half.

The most predictable part of grand final week will be the announcement of the NRL’s golden boy Ashley Klein as the referee for Sunday night. Was this ever in doubt?

And just for the record, Penrith has an 85.7 percent win record under Klein in the last three seasons. Over the same period the Eels have a 62.5 percent win record. (Buzz)

Don't Panthers have close to 90% win record in the last 3 seasons anyway?

On that note, just read that Cleary has lost 3 games in last 2 years when playing for Panthers. One of them was when he got sent off against the Eels this year. Crazy.

Klein struggles with big calls but I feel he's able to manage the speed very well. Still there's an issue if he's the best we have.

My loathing of Pawwa and Souffs goes back to the mid 60's and no other club has ever came close to my disdain for them.
The Tigers loathing of South’s goes back to around 1908 when both teams agreed to not play the GF but South’s did the dirty, showed up and won by forfeit !

Gold Member's Restaurant is a mere $249 per person for three courses and 2.5 hours of drinks (beer & wine only). Meanwhile you are seated near the escalators on level 4 and cannot see the ground. Yeah, nah.

Interesting stat in relatio to the nswrl

The only club to win the same three competitions in the same season in the 57 years since all competitions have been running together (NSW Cup 1908; Jersey Flegg Cup 1961; SG Ball Cup 1965) is Balmain Tigers in 1982.

If Penrith win Sunday they break Balmain Tigers record of 4 competitions won in same year

I am hoping Parra win.

Someone check me into a mental health facility. Supporting Parra as a WT supporter is blasphemy.
