Pick Your Team 2018 Rnd 17 - Panthers vs Warriors

Panthers 1.jpg

After the Round 16 game against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Mt Smart Stadium do you want to see any changes for the Round 17 game against the Penrith Panthers at Panthers Stadium?

Promotions?
Demotions?
Any new injury concerns?
Any returning players?
Any tweaks to the bench?

My bench is contentious coz I subbed Gavet and put Blair to prop with Iggy.
Ligi gets a start at lock.

Sorry but a small bench coz that's still better than having Lisone or Vete. Plus I'm not sold on Vuna at present.

Jazz to the middle provided he carries but does not try to playmake or link.
Just be a small middle and a grass cutter. He also subs Ligi. Lawton covers the backline and Bully if injured but not for a rest.

Then 2 boppers to rotate Iggy and Blair with the 2nd row to play the 80.

16. Is Sipley fit ? I am sick of these woosy little benches.
17. Lawton (plays Hooker backrow Center and half at a pinch sorry Jazz this guy is on my bench and will probably get zero minutes).
Why do people hate on Jazz? He shows more heart and fight than most bigger in size and paycheck week in week out.
Sorry I don’t get it

Apart from costing us the match by not diving on the ball, Mannering had his best day yet this season and looked like he found his rhythm just by being in the 13 jersey. He isn't enough of a playmaker to put him at 12.

The loss of Afoa may be insurmountable for the rest of our season. Who will be our 16 and 17.
 
Assuming Bunty and Tohu Harris out. I'd prefer Gelling at 12 over Mannering. Legend, but he's done....

Ok yeah great logic guy who’s played nearly 300 odd games in a position and is a great vs someone who’s played there ummm...never.
Give yourself an uppercut and call out David Tua you Mountain Warrior
 
I don’t think you can carry Lawton and Jazz on the bench.

I can but their usefulness depends on injury like when Bunty went down.

Just pretend Jazz is 6ft 5 and 119kg and can run the 100mtrs in 9.62sec and has massive endurance and didn't get it via peptides. Then stop calling him Jazz and change it to Heavy metal and you'll be sweet.

Nah I just think against Penriff he could be useful in the middle.

Would Gelling an edge or a middle? Not sold on his replacement value for Mannering or subbing him with Mannering when he's gassed.

If Mannering is done then drop him I say.
 
I just want the Panthers to play like they just did against the Sea Eagles..... was that the most ever dropped balls by any team ever, or what?? has to be some type of record!
