Are you allowed to put brown paper bags down the gurgler?

I don’t - I want to face them in the Prelim and beat them again.

My ego also wants Penrith to fail, they may be on a streak but you can’t tell me they’ve faced anyone good in that time. They haven’t faced Us, Melbourne or Roosters since Round 6 and i am still not convinced at all.

At least Panthers have built a team, not a bought a team.

If South’s don’t win the competition then I want Panthers too.

If we don’t win, anyone but Penrith or Roosters.

I guess hoping the Raiders go close.

Not much lost there. He has been surplus from what I’ve seen. SBW is just a marketing exercise these days.

Milo’s for me to if Souths don’t make it.
That dreadful non six again call on them in last years GF still sucks.

Yeah for me it’s anyone but The Roosters.

I hope they get pumped 2 weeks in a row and bow out.

The players are divided on SBW being parachuted in at the last minute.

That improves the Roosters chances

The SBW “injury” is well-timed for the Rooters. I was shocked by the muted response to Aubusson - the club’s most capped players, a one-club player, someone who has damaged his own chances of playing at a higher level because he happily fills in at any position on the ground for his club - missing the 17 as it was originally named this week. If any other club did that to a favourite son there would have been an outcry. Robinson may have always planned to bring Aubusson into the final 17 in place of Lam but having SBW drop out makes it even easier.

Having said all that, the Rooters bench tonight looks like being:
Lam/Aubusson
Collins
Crichton
Butcher/Aubusson.
That’s not a strong bench for a club with 40-odd internationals on the books. Panthers should put 30 on them tonight

He has done nothing
Players that were already there were going better

They dropped him.

I was thinking that. They told him he won’t be playing and then advised him to say he is injured. Been done before on many occasions .
