There doesn't appear to be a dedicated thread for the Panthers this year. They deserve a thread as they seem a real contender.

Rocks and diamonds Maloney the perfect fit for the Fittler mentality

James Maloney is a drink which makes you laugh and cry. NSW’s State of Origin five-eighth is a cold beer on a hot day followed by the warm white wine you wish you hadn’t ordered.

Nathan Cleary wants to wear the NSW No.7 jersey for the next decade and few will argue with the ambitions of the baby-faced playmaker after his debut in a winning Blues team.

Cleary received a pre-game pep talk from some of the greatest players to have pulled on the NSW jersey - Brad Fittler, Andrew Johns, Danny Buderus and Greg Alexander - and did not disappoint in the middle of the MCG.

The Penrith captain was forced to retire on Tuesday due to injury, announcing the end of a career that included 240 NRL games for the Panthers and Brisbane and four State of Origin appearances for NSW.

'Like Face/Off': Mansour reveals radical alternate plan to put his face back together

Josh Mansour sat in his surgeon's office days after his horrific round-six head injury and was presented with two courses of action to repair his shattered face.

Option one involved making four small incisions through which the surgeon could gain access to what resembled a "jigsaw puzzle" of splintered bone beneath the skin.
