    firstly, the win is important, they have soft edges in defence, and without lewis they arnt as potent in attack..

    with our back three safe as houses, im not too concerned about their ability to score off kicks.

    if we contain ennings and gordon and our centres get good early ball we should win comfortably.

    secondly, i reckon this is a good chance for us to rack up a score on hopefully a dry brooky against an underwhelming panthers.

    for and against is gonna be real important this year and you gotta put some points on when you have the chance.. which we havnt been able to do against the warriors or the knights recently.

    Travis has developed into a very good player. He's one to watch.

    If Brett plays, and I reckon he'll be named regardless on Tuesday, then Oldfield to miss out, Hoppa to the wing. It's great that we don't have to lament the Wolfman's injury extending from week to week.

    Brett must be very close to playing if he was close last night according to Dessie.
    But I personally cannot wait for Friday. Family rivalry with my uncle and my cousins so they are coming.. and my footy friends who all go for different teams are treking out with me too :) gonna be a great footy day for me :)

    I watched a few minutes of the Penrith game today. There was a Storm play where Burns made 4 one-on-one tackles in a single play! No one backed him up and Slater and some forward kept offloading it to eachother while Burns crawled on the ground between them grabbing their legs. Was quite amusing :)

    I haven't watched any 'Riff games this year but surely Mr.Burns isn't that bad?

    It'd be a shame for him to regress like that (unless it's just for Friday night!) as he was one of my favourite players when at Manly.

    In just about every match he plays, he is close to being the panthers best player. Underestimate him at your own peril.

    burns has turned into a solid 1st grader, a good tough defender but not much in attack. They rely heavily on Walsh's kicking game so assuming we handle this ok I am confident of a win. However, they will not be a push over.

    We should win this. Their halves don't create much at all.

    The Panthers can't score points, or at least have had a very tough time trying to do so for the last couple of weeks. So assuming we can, manly by alot!

    Burns is a great defender. Not much in attack, but he gives 100% each match and is certainly one of 'Riff's best.

    The thrashing they gave us last year still sticks in my mind but i think we are much better defensively this year. Need kite and king to step up again, we all know Joe always steps up.

    this game will be all about the first half i think and how we start. If Penrith start slow and dont gain any momentum, they usually switch off. If they come out and get on a roll, they are hard to stop.

    Our first halves have been solid enough to give us the second half edge, this is the week we really need to "put a team away" i think, and with a big home crowd (hopefully), i reckon it can be done. Expecting a big one from Jamie, Kingy and Watmough to push for origin spots (though like most, i'd prefer to have them in our lineup during origin time rather than in camp) and an 80 minute display / thumping might be what gets them in there.

    I would prefer Coote at the back than Gordon.

    Burns is a terrier in defence (I'll concede that) but offers little to nothing in attack

    Gordon is a MUCH better fullback than Coote

    They'll try their best but without appearing too confident..."we'll smash them across the park"
