PANTHERS NRL v EELS: Pirtek Stadium, Saturday 29th March. Kickoff: 5.30pm
After our gutsy 2 point win over the Bulldogs last weekend, Coach Ivan Cleary has only made one change to his side for Saturdays clash against the Eels, bringing Peter Wallace back into the halves.
Pete spent the Doggies game on the sidelines as a precaution after suffering a slight groin strain at training the day before.

PANTHERS NSW CUP v WENTWORTHVILLE: Ringrose Oval, Sunday 30th March. Kickoff: 3pm
Our NSW Cup boys posted their first win of the year last week, and Coach Garth Brennan is still playing around with his side a little bit to see where his players fit best. This week he’s moved Dallin Watene-Zelezniak to the wing, Will Smith moves to the fullback position, and Luke Capewell returns from injury to fill out the halves with Isaac John.
The flying Fijian Eto Nabuli is back having recovered from a knee injury he suffered at the Auckland Nines, Reagan Campbell-Gillard has been promoted from the bench to start at prop, and Anthony Cherrington fills out a very strong bench for the Panthers.
INTERCHANGE: 14. Shaun SPENCE, 15. Tom EISENHUTH, 16. Leilani LATU, 17. Mitch CLARK, 18. Liam AYOUB, 22. Anthony CHERRINGTON
