Heard a rumour that knucklehead masquerading as the NSW #9 is heading to Penriff. Any substance to that rumour people?

How reliable is your source mate? The reason why I ask is that the Panthers have a better hooker than Ennis already there. Unless they wanted Ennis for state cup then that's understandable.

I know this Chris, Kingston has it in spades on Ennis, thats why I'm keen to find out whether its the case or not. Can't fathom why they would sign him?

My source knows a few of the players and people high up in the club. He's usually right.

I heard that Ennis tidbit last week myself.

The story is that apparently the Bulldogs AND pernriff are after Inglis and the Bulldogs are willing to get rid of Ennis(amongst others) if they can get Inglis and Penrith would sign Ennis if they didn't get Inglis.

Why they would do this after having signed Kingston till 2013 is anyones guess, but it is only a rumour, but a rumour that's obviously gotten around.

They've got plenty of money to offer after missing out on Thurston and Wicks/Houston leaving the club.
