I think they're just qualifying and elimination. Not major or minor.

I thought Sutton was the pick up until about 5/6 weeks ago but then the ruck in his games started slowing down again. Cummins' rucks have been dreadful all year. Atkins has been pretty decent. Klein is just a muppet on the same level as Cummins.

I just hope it is a very hard game for both teams and goes into golden point. Better still, extra time on top of that, if they have it!

I’ll have one of these too please. A rough scrounging game too would be good.

Lussick goes over now. No video to show he didn't score. Has to be confirmed. Bunker says TRY.

That'd be great! Panthers in complete disarray at the moment.

The Roosters' defence is surprisingly loose all of a sudden.

Nah... I reckon they look at it once and call it a knock on straight away.

If you lose control of the ball forward and comes off your legs it's a knock on. The Billy Slater rule.

But that's a nice try from Cleary.

The Roosters' defence is really in trouble. They're definitely off their game at the moment.

Panthers. They’re my out n out second team. I feel they’re probably the closest thing to our rival, but I’ve always had a soft spot for them
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

Agree on both.

Playing at pace is how to beat the chooks.
Panthers have cohesion,confidence and momentum.
Pretty to watch.

I think we all should get behind the Panthers here to inflict some mental anguish on the Roosters.

They would come in rattled next week for sure.
