Michael Ennis writes off ‘horrific’ Panthers after loss to Warriors


Recommended Posts


PENRITH’S season is over.

That’s the view of Fox Sports commentator Michael Ennis who has written off the Panthers’ chances following their 36-16 loss to the Warriors on Friday night.

Nothing went right for the Panthers in Auckland where they were exposed in both defence and attack against a rampant Warriors outfit.

Fans even turned on the team’s general manager Phil Gould after his decision to sack coach Anthony Griffin in the lead-up to the finals.

“Their attack is so stifled, they’ve got no other option than to kick,” Ennis said.

“Their attack inside the 20-metre zone has been horrific.

“They’ve turned to kicks — whether it’s been (backrower) Bill Kikau’s two kicks in the first half or Nathan Cleary kicking early.

“Boy, oh boy, are they missing James Maloney this evening.

“ … I cant see them winning another game this year after what we’ve seen over the past month.”

Co-commentator Steve Roach agreed.

“They’ve been rudderless, they were against Newcastle last week,” Roach said.

“I expected them to come out better than last week but it hasn’t happened.”
