    If you ask any Panther supporter today they will give you a big resounding YES.

    Dubbed the "pretenders" all year didn't they show some class and determination last night.

    For those of you unaware one of my two in laws is a Panthers fan, Mick (who lives in Moree) has had the year from hell, at age 35 diagnosed with Colrectal Cancer in September last year.

    He's just completed, 3 months of Radiation / Chemo, followed by a few weeks off, then 3 1/2 weeks in hospital, 7 days of which he was in intensive care for the biggest operation you could think of and then all followed up by 6 months of more chemo.

    This concluded just in time for me to shout him a trip to Brookvale for the last home game where if not for a miracle he would have seen his side beat mine.

    Last night it was his turn for a miracle, and his Panthers delivered in spades.

    Mick was up for the weekend and sitting next to me last night watching the game, I was doing a fair bit of cheering for his team and was so pleased for the result and he said, "that was our turn for a miracle".

    They left to head back to Moree this morning and as he shook my hand and said farewell he said,

    " We've had our miracle now its your turn to get another one".

    Lets hope he's right!!

      If we don't win it, I'll cheering for the Panfers. They have been a breath of fresh air this year and congratulations to them.

        Heres a confession Mark, until recently could not stand Soward...actually got to give him credit on a great season & playing with plenty of toughness that was lacking previously....Panthers have shocked even the most ardent supporters....shows how important desire can be to get over the line & on the flip side, over confidence to the point of arrogance like the Roosters, can lose a game.

          Even before last night I was going for the Panthers as a back up team.

          The great thing was I had to endure a day of misery from my Roosters family, which certainly changed later!!!

            Nothing miraculous about the Panthers win, that club has been on the rise since G Gould took over and since Soward had "something to prove" - mostly to himself.

            Hats off to Gus. The Panfars have turned their ship around, if they can keep uncovering talent from their massive nursery they should be top 8 material every year.

              Soward carried on like a first class arse hole last night, but he produced some wonderful clutch plays and I am very happy for the Penrith football club and their supporters. Boy can Ivan Cleary coach!
