Are they fair dinkum or not? The bookies think not @ $15, but they are leading the comp after 17 rounds. Surely that means something. Like most, I think the Panthers will slide over the remaining rounds to the bottom half of the 8. But they could easily win 4 or 5 of their remaining games & possibly sneak into the 4. They have a solid forward pack without being outstanding. They are a no frills pack, but get the job done. Not too unlike our pack of the last few weeks. They have Kitey upfront leading the way, and he has been there done that, a couple of times now. Soward is back to playing reasonable footy and they have plenty of speed in the backline. How good is Mansour going!! A lot could depend on how long Wallace is out for. Plenty of pressure will come onto Soward if Wallace is out for an extended period. Tyrone Peachey is the x-factor that every team needs. Hard to read and stop. At $15 the Panthers are a bit of value as a smokey.
