    And to think with 20 minutes to go the Dragons had the lead. Wicked game of footy.

    Well the Worriers never got out of first gear. Mind you Cumnmins did them no favours. Panthers offside in nearly all 1-4 play the balls, and markers regularly allowed to stand side by aside.

    I thought Warriors were a big show to beat inexperienced Panthers but it was no show, Cleary, Maloney etc might not get back in the team

    Sign him up, plays 5/8, could play centre or match winning bench player, we could use all three.
    Seriously he is of contract,,he could play 5/8 with Watson at hooker and Levi bench, if injury in backs Watson covers and Levi plays especially while Griff is out, probably most of 2019
