Camped in ninth spot, Penrith must beat the fifth-placed Sea Eagles to keep their finals aspirations alive. "Instead of standing back and waiting to see what they're going to do I think we've got to go out there and give it to them," Clinton said. "We have to bash and barge our way through them. They're playing some good footy at the moment but myself, Craig Stapleton and the other forwards have got to get out there and take it to the Eagles." Clinton said the unsung Penrith pack would not be intimidated by a quality Manly outfit that includes representatives Ben Kennedy and Brent Kite. "You can't be intimidated, they're only human," Clinton said. "There's no supermen out there. The best thing for us this week is to get out there and be confident that we can beat the Eagles." Fellow forward Matthew Cross supported Clinton, saying it was vital the Panthers pack marked their intentions early. "Whoever controls the game is normally going to run away with it so it's important we start the game right on top of them," Cross said. "We've got to take the game to them. We can't stand back and wait for them to control the game. "
