Where's Yvonne gone? Surely Bwaif isn't an actual host now.

So a 2nd string Panthers side is likely to lose to two of our closest rivals for the 8 skewing the competition.

I get that people love origin (not me), but the margins in the NRL comp are too fine to have it interfere so badly in the core business.

Sharks to overtake us this week

I can’t reply to other forum members and the lag at updating anything I post is impossible in this thread. Using iOS 🤕

Take their great halves out and Penrith look like the Warriors 🤣
Yeah I think we can safely say Ivan hasn’t built a system (a la Storm or the Rorters) that can withstand losing key players. They’ve won without Cleary jr in the past but the Pompom crew who are sitting it out on the sideline is too much. Always interesting watching guys like Crichton and Kikau who are rockstars in a full strength outfit really struggle against a good-ish opposition. Shauns in a mood though.

Sharks win is bad news for everyone chasing the 8
They win today and it’s 3 in a row

Cows next week and can make it 4

Confidence will make them hard to beat. Just look at Manly…

Penrith are mentally weak when it counts.

Which is why they will never beat a Storm side in a finals context.

Penrith taking every excuse not to win tonight. Ok so missing your star halves is a good excuse for a big drop in performance, but no excuse for the lack of effort we are seeing.

We haven't played yet, what happened to being ever hopeful against the storm

Tahjay can rename me 'Smidgen Hopeful' this week. If I ignore the last 10 times we've met, Storm are our whipping boys. We just need to play patient Kearney ball in the first half and then bamboozle Cronk with a SJ dummy, get Nathan Friend to throw the miracle, upside down ball, and have Michael Witt rark them up by being a smart arse to bring it home in the 2nd half. I'm a bit worried about Marcus Bai matching up against Maumalo though.

+ To'o, Yeo and Capewell.

So far this is a 66 point turnaround for the Sharks compared to Round 9.

Never Hopeful might be more appropriate for you?

Penrith aren’t done here…..

This game is a good example of why we shouldn't re sign Johnson...

I don’t think the sharks can even hold on for golden point here. Burton is targeting Johnson
