“With The Absence Of Jarome Luai They’re Beatable” | James Graham On How To Beat Panthers

James Graham joined The Rush Hour with Gus, Jude & Wendell to discuss all things finals footy.


Back-to-back premiers Penrith Panthers just secured their third straight Minor Premiership and are favourites to win a third title.

Though after Jarome Luai’s dislocated shoulder, a lot of pressure will be on back up half Jack Cogger.

Luai has been deemed to return for the preliminary finals if the Panthers were to make it, though James Graham believes there is an opportunity for a big shock throughout the NRL world.

“Yes, Penrith are the favourites,” said Graham.

“[But] with the absence of Jarome Luai they are now beatable.”

“They way to do it, let the Panthers think they need to turn to Jack Cogger to win the game.”
