    HIA as soon as he came back on for his second stint.  Failed it and didn't return.

    Farah to McInnes is tempting but probably silly.

    Never had Farah, I have cook, Smith, McInnis and Fainu. Thinking Fainu to Rapana who has scored 50 plus in 3 of his last 4. Since coming back from injury Leipana looks back and Jordan just wants the ball all the time. They have tigers roosters Rabbitohs warriors and other than 6pm warriors game they are all afternoon games which should mean lots of attack. Rapana a POD WFB? Cotric can than go to emg as cover?

    Big news considering they’ve been winning and are finals certainties. I don’t rate Griffin at all but injuries are hardly his fault either.

    Reports are that Griffin can't handle the team and they don't believe he is fit enough to coach them to a premiership. Also they believe Ciraldo (the assistant coach) has a strong relationship with Cleary and believe he can help keep Cleary at the Panthers beyond 2019.

    Because he only cracked 50, and thats with a try. Plus his 3 game average is 46.67 for someone who is supposed to be a 60 plus scorer. Maybe his hold age and lack of game time and match fitness is catching up to him now he is 7 full games into a season that started in Round 13 for him.

    Cast your mind back to the trials when they got flogged and there were rumblings. Then there was a 180 degree turn around the first couple of rounds and rumours that Gus was running the team. Then after every loss it would raise it's head. Nobody least of all Hook should be suprised.

    DT early mail suggests ponga could play in the halves if Pearce is ruled out with a bad cork.

    Ivan's relationship with Cleary isn't bad either

    If Ivan moves to the Panthers or Nate to the Tigers people will just start with the Boyd/Bennett stuff "oooooo what is he, your Dad or something?"

    SJ, Arrow, Farah or even ARey against the Chooks.  Leaning towards Farah.
