    Having just placed bets on the Broncos and Panthers to score tries for first scoring plays in both of tonights encounters, I strongly recommend getting on the wabbits and loleels
    Parmi

    Avatar now by choice. 5-0 in the Ashes and all.

    Tipped Penrith because I pretty much never tip Parramatta but I have a feeling Parra might win tonight.

    Reckon Penrith needed to to win 3 out of their first 4 to make the finals - or at least 2, so this is a really important game. Not because I think they'll fade (although they usually do) but because they had such an easy draw up front. If you start the year with matches against Easts, South, Parramatta and Canterbury and then only win one of them you're going to need to knock some really top sides off later in the year. Easts and Parramatta are particularly rubbish teams to lose to (if they do go down tonight, that is).

    Maybe in hindsight, but better teams than us will lose to the Rabbits when they play like that, and the mange are the form team thus far and we stuck with them despite playing rubbish.

    But yeah tonight is a big game.

    But it's an even bigger game for Parra. 0 from 4 (with 3 losses at home) would be a bit of a disaster even when taking into account their opponents.

    I've gone for Parra. Tim Grant is unlikely to play again.

    Yeah but they were never any hope of making the finals anyway; they have a terrible squad. And even when they do make the finals it's always sneaking into the back end on the back of some late-season fluky **** and Hayne brilliance.

    Penrith have a squad that many pundits tipped to finish in the bottom 4. It would be quite the surprise for many if they were to make the top 8 too.

    Parra's squad on the whole is not terrible either. If they had a full strength team with footballers playing at their optimal level they would finish in the top 8.

    Hayne, Burt, Tonga, Roberts, Sandow, Mannah, Moi Moi, Hindmarsh, Maitua have all been good players at different stages of their careers.

    The squad they have contains:

    2 x Origin & 1 x Kiwi international prop
    1 AT back rower for the club
    1 x lock who's played for Australia
    1 x 5/8 who's played for NZ
    1 x international centre
    1 x international winger/ fullback.

    And whilst Sandow is no Thurston, he's a decent enough half back, and there aren't many around.

    The way the team is going is piss poor. You have a look at those two Origin props - they run like scared women into the defensive line. It's an embarrassment.

    Tonga hasn't seen the ball, Hayne has played 15 minutes. These aren't excuses btw - they're playing ****. But the squad itself isn't a dud squad. There's some decent enough players there, but I'm sad to say some of them aren't having a go, and should therefore probably be sacrificed on the altar of Sterlo and killed.
