Two of the few clubs who went through the rep round unscathed, these two sides will need all of their available players if they are to emerge from a slow (to say the least) start to 2017.

The Panthers, for all of their star power and offensive flamboyancy, have been unable to recapture the form that led them to the second week of the finals and pre-season premiership favouritism.

This week, they welcome back James Fisher-Harris as they come up against a frustratingly inconsistent Warriors side looking to string together a few wins to elevate themselves into the top eight.

Keiran Foran confirmed the NRL’s worst kept secret that he’ll be heading to Belmore next year, which he says has taken a weight off of his shoulders as Warriors fans hope his combination with Shaun Johnson will only continue to blossom.

Johnson against Nathan Cleary is sure to be a mouth-watering match-up as both players aren’t shy about putting their many talents on show.

Again, this proves as another interesting game to pick, but we’ll (maybe for the final time this season) back the Panthers to get their season up and running.

Panthers by 8.

  1. No wonder all the Warriors fans in Sydney live in the eastern suburbs – it’s close to The Gap. After tonight’s performance the car park there will be full.
