Absolutely agree Mushi. I can sit looking at trends when really it all comes down to who shows up on the night 👍

Thanks Paul 👍 I agree with you finals footy is a different game altogether.

Upon reflection, point 3 I understand is irrelevant to my point. I was trying to show the luck and ease of the draw they’ve had compared to the contenders – Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra.

I’m not going to argue with a passionate fan Albo! No doubt this is their best team since 2003. Plenty of great comparisons – they won their last 7 matches, minor premiers, they also didn’t finish in the 8 the previous year, oh and don’t forget the last father and son to win a premiership was John and Martin Lang that year too! 👍

Thanks Barry. I agree, I would love to see them lift the trophy 👍

I’m with you Ray! Anyone but Sydney and Melbourne 😂

Penrith shouldn’t go out in straight sets, they should beat Parra either in Week 1 or Week 2 (if Penrith lose to Canberra, and Parra beat Cronulla).

Thanks Andrew 👍 Absolutely agree, losing Cleary will be a huge loss to the Panthers.

Point 3, upon reflection, I agree is irrelevant to the headline but yes, as you said I was trying to get across the point that it was a contributing factor to their streak 👍

I understand stats/history means nothing.

Just thought I’d provide insight on how Penrith’s run has been easier than the other contenders (Roosters, Penrith, Canberra) and how they compare to other past teams in the NRL era to get a gauge on where they are at.

Thanks Duncan 👍 It will be even tougher if Parra drop from the top and Canberra clinch 4th.
