Shame that Seve is missing after his best game - need to get that back line settled. Good to see Loiero back but no sign of Tepai again.

Big game this one - very winnable and if we do then we should make top 4.

Think this result will tell us more about how we'll go the rest of the way than last weeks.

Glad Jahrome is back but a little surprised Cooper is out of the team completely. Feel like we've still got to get those last two bench spots sorted,. Don't think Lewis has offered anything this season, while Wishart seems to only play if someone goes down.

It is astonishing that Cooper is not named as a reserve but Jayden N is. Cooper must be injured. He really has done well in recent times , so certainly ( if fit );should be next man up if Jahrome does not recover in time .

According to Fox sports Hughes in doubt. So Johns not named, therefore can't play. Who plays in the halves?

Pezet not named either, could probably get NRL permission to parachute him in though. Otherwise its Wishart or Nikorima. Either that or try Grant at 7 again... interesting.

Ezra Mam and Cobbo will have a field day against our right edge with no Hughes/Felise combo and potentially stop-gap players filling in.

However, in saying that, the remainder of the team lists are just mouthwatering match ups left right and center.

Even without Cleary and Whatsisface, Panthers backs are no slouches. Last week our backline actually stepped up and did their job.
Hoping for more of the same
We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately

My local game tonight. Excited. Just on way in on the train.

I am hoping we get it done but think it will be close. Storm by 4-6

It’s 6.45 and Hughes surely won’t drop out this late. Huge inclusion if in
