Round 19 v Roosters

PANTHERS NRL v ROOSTERS: Allianz Stadium. Saturday July 19. Kickoff: 3pm

Ivan Cleary has been forced to make a few changes to his side this week after we picked up a couple of injuries in last night’s win over the Broncos.

Tyrone Peachey suffered a suspected pec tear and Josh Mansour injured his ankle, and we are waiting on the results of scans to determine how long they will be out of action.

Matt Moylan spent some time in the halves alongside Jamie Soward last night and Ivan has named him there again for this weekend. That leaves room for young Dallin Watene-Zelezniak to return to first grade at fullback, with Isaah Yeo coming into the side as 18th man.

PANTHERS NSW CUP v NEWTOWN: Allianz Stadium. Saturday July 19. Kickoff: 12.45pm

We will have a full strength NSW Cup side to play Newtown again this week, after we beat them 36-20 at home on Saturday.

Kieran Moss made his comeback from injury last weekend and he will line up at fullback again this week, which sees Will Smith shift to the centres.

Ben Murdoch-Masila is the only casualty we have at the moment, with Vaipuna Tia Kilifi replacing him in the starting front row. Coach Garth Brennan has also named an extended six man bench.

PANTHERS NYC v ROOSTERS: Allianz Stadium. Saturday July 19. Kickoff: 10.45am

Coach Trent Barrett will be hoping his boys can turn in another performance like last night when they put 50 points on the Broncos.

He will have to do without Dallin Watene-Zelezniak who’s been called up to first grade, but he will have Captain Andy Saunders officially back in the side to guide them around the park.

Corey Harawira-Naera returns to the fullback position and Peter Tia Tia will start in the centres. The rest of the side is the same as last night.
