Canterbury Cup Late Mail: Round 8

Panthers Canterbury Cup coach Guy Missio has finalised his side to face Mounties at Aubrey Keech Reserve.

Given the significant injury toll and likely suspensions arising from yesterday's defeat to Canberra, Jarome Luai, Hame Sele, Kaide Ellis and Tyrell Fuimaono have been withdrawn from the side.

All four players are likely to be selected in the Panthers NRL squad to travel to Brisbane on Thursday.

The club's depth will be sorely tested against Mounties with Shawn Blore (ankle), Spencer Leniu (knee), Jed Cartwright (shoulder), Paea Pua (knee), Dean Blore (shoulder) and Daine Laurie (concussion) also unavailable.

Adam Fearnley and Brad Gaut are backing up after playing for the Panthers Jersey Flegg side in Wagga Wagga on Saturday.
