Match Preview
The Panthers will want to prove themselves this week that they can control and win a game without having to come from behind to steal it. The Titans are in party ruining mode, making several top 8 teams think twice about an "easy win" after pummeling the Warriors but cast shadows of doubt on themselves for not backing up against the Eels.

Key Matchups
I'm looking forward to the see how Jai Arrow fairs against the return or Regan Campbell-Gillard. Jai's form has been awesome this season and we will find out if Regan's cyber jaw is rock solid or made of glass.

Also Ash Talyor vs the Cleary/Maloney show. If Cleary can keep his mind on the game and not the club/family drama this week then the NSW origin halves should do well. The titans should keep an eye out for Maloney's cut out passes.

Jeremy's Prediction 
With all the upheaval at the Panthers, we will find out today how much the drama has effected their preparation and mindset for this week.  I reckon the Panthers will consolidate and show true team spirit and take the win for eachother. Panthers by 12
