      Yep the Raiders "adopted" it after the Euros and its featured at the last handful of games. Last game was a sell out so 250000 people going it was spine tingling.

      Must be nice to be part of it in the stadium! At some point I thought some Brazilian football club would pick it up but I haven't seen any trying it.

      Mate either way it will be a cracking game get on to tickets early as I'm hearing it will be a sell out again.

      All done mate. In the Panthers section and jumping on the fan bus on the way there and back. They went lightning quick.

      I love Johnathan Thurston so I'll want the Cowboys to progress. I would love the Panthers to win the GF against them. But perhaps I'm thinking too far ahead here. Haha

      The commentators during the game were giving a lot of praise for Peter Wallace. He really has been very solid of late, keeps things ticking as the team has been doing really fast play the balls. They also said the Panthers are a joy to watch when they're at their best and you've got to agree. That Wallace try was a joy to behold. The quick passing from Moylan to Mansour and back to Moylan. Great work by Yeo and then even better from Peachey. It was awesome.

      As for the Four Nations, I'm seriously considering also buying tickets for some other game(s), but this will depend on being able to travel. There will be games in cities such as Hull, Coventry and London. The Kiwis are cool to watch but it would be nice to see the home team getting to the final, and if they do so I would want it to be against Australia. Hopefully with some Panthers players on it.

      What's the Viking clap you've both mentioned? Like Iceland in the Euros?

      I wasn't his biggest fan to start with but he has won me over completely.

      20000 tickets sold so far with a quarter of those being panthers fans.

      I'm reading Austin will play 100% still unsure on Hodgson either way should be a cracker!

      Almost certain Hodgson is out but Blake Austin will be playing.

      Adam Clydsdale will start and Kurt Baptiste will come off the bench.

      Got well over a dozen buses heading down from the club to Canberra. I cannot wait!

      Sorry to you both.

      Had to miss watching the game live as I was at my presentation had it recorded and will watch now.

      Must admit after going 18-0 up then you guys scoring back to back I was starting to sh*t myself.

      From what I saw the penalty that made it an 8 point game was soft.

      Scored your second off a bullshit strip call, too.

      I thought we had it when we were coming back. Those two high tackle penalties were rubbish and the Merrin offload on the try line at 18-12 was the end of it, though.

      No chance, Billy. Nathan would still be on the 20s.

      Griffin has done a superb job this season. Deserves praise.

      Phil Gould was pulling all the strings at one time but I don't know if that is still the case.John would have some idea of his involvement these days. as he is a big Panther fan.

      Gus is active in recruitment and roster management in association with Griffin and Jim Jones, but Griffin calls the shots on the field. Griffin told Elijah Taylor, Soward and Segeyaro they weren't wanted and Gould then negotiated their departures based on what Griffin wanted.

      Griffin went to watch the 20s play and he picked out Dylan Edwards, Tyrone May and Nathan Cleary to train with the first team. Hence two of those coming through this season.

      Griffin also has sacked the whole coaching staff minus a select few for next season as he doesn't feel some of the coaches are compatible. Even the trainers and medical team are gone.

      Everything you see on the field is Griffin. Gus works on the roster and the business side. Same as when Ivan was there.

      It's been quiet here lately! haha

      Sharks won the NRL.

      And the Super League Grand Final is only a few hours away.

      In my very first week in the UK, I went to Warrington to watch the Saints play the SL semifinal against the Wire. They lost, obviously.

      I intended to go to the Grand Final irrespective of the teams on it, but seeing how much money I would spend to watch two teams I dislike - Wire v Wigan - I thought it was better to just stay home...

      Are you from Warrington mate?

      I think I'll be going to the Grand Final anyway, but sure it would be nicer if my team were on it. Saints are more like dark horses this year, only entered the top four recently with the Dragons simply falling apart, but you never know...

      Very late reply ;D but yeah I am haha. Can't be doing with Saints (Sh*t Helens ;D ) even though i'm living there with my girlfriend from around those parts at the moment ;D.

      Think that stems from you lot beating us so many times in a row by the odd point back from the early 2000s all the way to around 2014.

      Awful start to the season for Wire, not great for Saints. Kieren Cunningham is out of his depth in that job, it's too big for him with the rebuilding you lot have to do.

      As for Warrington we are the nearly men, our owner has spent the money but we fall short time and again in the finals.

      We won't be troubling the top 4 this season by the look of things

      That was some game of rugby league just there. Tonga from 20 nil down with 6 minites to go, almost (maybe should have) won it on the hooter.

      Great game played in front of great Tongan support.

      The Aussies have got a nerve by the way. Cant be arsed showing up all tournament and sell out the final. They've had a strange way to show support for their supposed national sport all tournament. Total apathy.

      It's not our national sport. Aussie Rules is (sadly. Sh*t game imo).

      I couldn't give two shits about the Aussie side. I just want our Panthers boys back in one piece. More concerned about building up the Pacific Islands (Tonga, Samoa etc.) and Fiji to make them more competitive. Australia can't be beaten right now - it's just boring.
