    The Panthers took advantage when Brendan Attwood spun out of a tackle to score next to the posts. Watene-Zelezniak converted the try for a 16-0 lead after 29 minutes.

    Wests Tigers team: 1 Delouise Hoeter,2 Kurtis Rowe, 3 Nathan Milone, 4 Manaia Rudolph, 5 Leva Li, 6 Matt Mulcahy ©, 7 Luke Brooks, 8 Andy Fiagatusa, 9 Manaia Cherrington, 10 Dallas Graham, 11 Rhys Armstrong, 12 Shane Lalogafau, 13 Fosio Tatola; interchange: 14 Richard Ene, 15 Andrew Kazzi, 16 Rhyce McLaren, 18 Nofoa Leapai.



  • Tigers were on the back foot the whole game losing ground from their first 5th tackle. Obvious they are missing troops
    The Panthers had 4 lucky try’s
    Luke Brooks was heavily marked - looks like he has bulked up a bit
    The interchange player ene looks a prospect



  • Ene has played a few First Grade games for us at Camden Rams this year, he is a nice bloke with a big frame, a good prospect indeed.



  • What a boring frustrating game to watch! They really missed Lovett and Santi!! All game, no communication, poor leadership and poor decision making, especially on the 5th tackle!

  • Anyone know when Mitch Moses is back? He’s not getting alternated between NSW Cup & NYC?

    Round 15. I believe he’s mostly (if not completely) been left in NYC Cup. He’s 75kg so needs to up his weight to past 80. Also, I think the coaches wanted to see how well Brooks went playing men and WITHOUT his halves partner.

    Thanks for the update! Just looking forward to seeing him play as a lot of the focus has been on Brooks.

    yeah, definitely it has. In my opinion he is as good if not better than Brooks it’s just that Brooks suits the 1st Grade side a lot better (plays 7) and is more NRL ready weight wise.
