Penrith remind me of Warriors 2012. Hyped up as premiership contenders after a solid previous year but with a really young squad. Give some good opening performances to give hope but effectively crumble away as the year progresses and it becomes clear the young blokes just aren't ready yet. I might be wrong but some of these penrith players just aren't 80 minute first graders. They have Broncos next week so they could be 2-7 before they meet us.
It can be good to watch but their style of play hasn't really proven be sustainable through a finals series, Tigers in '05 maybe, Eels with Hayne made the GF but year on year it really is hit and miss, I think the Panthers will find that out in the long run too.
