As we again reveal updated squad lists, Suaia Matagi and Josh Mansour prepare to head in different directions and face vastly different challenges.

Panthers coach Anthony Griffin has ensured the club's talent is shared between the two squads, with both sides boasting a combination of youth and experience.

The weekend of high-intensity rugby league should leave the club in great shape for blockbuster trials at Pepper Stadium against the Bulldogs on February 13 and the Eels on February 20.
