How come Inu's in #17? Why not just wear #4?

He's too big for the Jersey?

Steve Rapira is playing prop too.

I would like to see him get a shot in Ta'ai's place tbh. Having both Rapira brothers in the top side at the same time might inspire some special footie between them.

I agree. I also think that Steve will bring some different skills into thegame that frankly, Ta'ai doesn't have

Interested to see how Jennings goes if he in fact does line up for the Wolves.
Looks a good game on paper.

I'm definitely going to be heading out - it should be a cracker. I'm most looking forward to seeing that huge Vulcans pack go to battle. I'm a huge fan of Steve's, I think he has the best tackling technique at the Warriors.

It's disappointing they haven't made this game a triple header on the main field and broadcast it all on sky. I love those days!

I may be wrong, but didn't the vulcans play saturday afternoon last weekend aswell? Surely all the equipment needed would all be there ready.

Good to see Steve back. Can't wait to see him get a chance in the top side!

Does anyone know if Ikahihifo has been back long? I recall him being injured at some point

Im not sure if that's going to happen. As it currently stands, it seems more likely that Ukuma will be at the club in 2013, than Rapira. So with that in mind, it'll take some serious injuries before Rapira gets back in the team. As I view it, he's probably behind Ukuma, Sam Louisi, Ikahihifo & Palavi.

I asked Someone at Warriors HQ about the timing of the Vulcans game last weekend, they said it was so the visiting team could catch a flight back that evening. I would assume the same would apply this week.

Gutted. Not that I blame Rapira. He's barely managed a game in first grade since coming back for one reason or another.

Oh really ? I guess that's understandable. I always thought at the very least they could've pushed the game time to start at 3 on field two and never mind the broadcasting. It'll allow those heading to the game to catch the 3 games back to back. Oh well not to be..

I wish I could head to this game but club footy is in the way. Jennings vs Inu would've been worth the drive.

Do you guys think Jennings deserved to be dropped? I know he's a bit overated and hasnt been playing the greatest but tbh no one at the panthers has. Dont know why hes the scape goat. Anyway should be a good clash, hopefully the Vulcans come out on top!

He's been acting like a tool off the field apparently. Getting on the piss when told not to, walking off the pitch during training with "Injuries"

Ivan doing the right thing. You can't let that shit go.

Ivan will make them a better club, hopefully on the field as well as off the field. I feel sorry for Ivan. Injures haven't been nice to the panthers and they weren't exactly a great squad to begin with. Now they even have salary cap issues!

I think Ivan will eventually make them a 6-12 ranking squad if Gould sticks with him long enough...
