Time to get out the crystal ball. PANTHERS

With less than 8 weeks away from the start of the NRL season, we continue to gaze into the crystal ball as we continue to go through what we believe will be your teams best 17 heading into their 2018 campaign.

1 Dylan Edwards
2 Dallin Watene-Zelezniak
3 Dean Whare
4 Waqa Blake
5 Josh Mansour
6 James Maloney
7 Nathan Cleary
8 James Tamou
9 Peter Wallace
10 Reagan Campbell-Gillard
11 Corey Harawira-Naera
12 Isaah Yeo
13 Trent Merrin
14 Viliame Kikau
15 Bryce Cartwright
16 James Fisher-Harris
17 Tyrone Peachey

There won't be a lot of changes in the best 17 at the foot of the mountain's, outside of the Moylan Maloney trade that occured in the off-season. There is already talk that due to this move the Panther's may have the NSW Blues 6, 7 and 9.

Harawira-Naera will start over Cartwright and Fisher-Harris, though there is a chance Harawira-Naera will miss the start of the season as he recovers from a shoulder injury. Which would see Sione Katoa called up to the bench for the start of the season and one of the above mentioned into the starting side.
Also on the bench will be Viliame Kikau after an outstanding world cup with Fiji.
In recent days rumours have started that Peachey will be off to the Titans, but if he stays at the Panther's he will most likely play the utility spot on the bench.

What to you think of the side? Let us know in the comments.
