PANTHERS NRL v BULLDOGS: Sportingbet Stadium, Saturday 22nd March. Kickoff: 4.30pm
Ivan Cleary has done a little bit of shuffling this week to accommodate Dave Simmons being out with a knee injury. He has brought Kevin Naiqama into the #2 jersey after his two-try performance in Melbourne last weekend, and he’s shifted Josh Mansour to the opposite wing.
Jamal Idris pulled up well after his debut match and he’s been named in the centres, and Tim Grant will start from the bench after a few weeks off with a calf strain.

PANTHERS NSW CUP v BULLDOGS: Sportingbet Stadium, Saturday 22nd March. Kickoff: 2.10pm
Coach Garth Brennan was disappointed with his team’s performance against Wyong last weekend, but he’s sticking by his side and has only made a couple of changes.
Wes Naiqama returns from injury and will start on the wing, while Anthony Cherrington will fill out the interchange bench after finishing the suspension that was carried over from last year’s Grand Final.

PANTHERS NYC v BULLDOGS: Sportingbet Stadium, Saturday 22nd March. Kickoff: 12.10pm
Coach Trent Barrett has made quite a few changes this week after two losses in a row.
He’s moved Brent Naden from fullback to the centres, bringing in Corey Harawira. He’ll trial Naya Freeman on the wing and has moved Captain Andy Saunders out to lock.
He has a very strong bench to call on too, which its hoped will get them their first win of the season.
