State of Origin
MICHAEL CHAMMAS Penrith prop Tim Grant has declared he'll be fit for Origin II after Blues coach Laurie Daley listed the injured forward as one of four candidates to replace the suspended James Tamou.
Michael Carayannis, Brad Walter An injury to Wes Naiqama is not guaranteed to open the door for star rookie Matt Moylan to return to the Penrith side, with changes to the second-tier salary cap unlikely to be introduced before Saturday's match in Canberra.
PHIL GOULD Respect is so important in any walk of life. It certainly has its place in professional sport.
BRAD WALTER The second-tier salary cap system that has interrupted the NRL career of promising Penrith rookie Matt Moylan will be officially reviewed this week and the changes may lead to him being able to line up for the Panthers again.
GLENN JACKSON Penrith fullback Matt Moylan was ''pretty filthy and disappointed'' to be denied the opportunity to play in the NRL this week due to salary cap restrictions he said he could not understand.
MICHAEL CHAMMAS Just minutes before his match-winning try, Tim Simona was on the receiving end of arguably the biggest tackle of the season from Dean Whare, but it was the Tigers centre who had the last laugh.
Daniel Lane Kevin Kingston warns against taking the injury-hit Wests Tigers lightly, writes Daniel Lane.

Adam Pengilly, Michael Carayannis His immediate playing future may be in limbo, but Jamie Soward hasn't asked for an early release from his contract and intends to see out the year with the Dragons, according to his manager Sam Ayoub.
MICHAEL CHAMMAS During the week, Penrith skipper Kevin Kingston dismissed the notion his side were playing well enough to be noticed by opposition teams - but there's no hiding now.
MICHAEL CHAMMAS His team had just won 62-6. Most coaches - even Wayne Bennett - could afford a smile at such a moment. But not Ivan Cleary.
WIN Jubilee Oval, Kogarah, Saturday 7.35pm (AEST)
MICHAEL CHAMMAS The Oak Panthers - as Phil Gould calls them - are suddenly the flavour of the month.
Ian McCullough Kevin Kingston has been told to find a new NRL club by Penrith with the Panthers informing him they won't be offering the skipper a new deal in 2014.
MICHAEL CHAMMAS It's ironic that Isaac John appears to have resurrected his NRL career at the same ground that almost ended it.
MICHAEL CHAMMAS It was those who once were Warriors that haunted their former club as the Panthers racked up 62 points to send Matt Elliott from Penrith with an all-too-familiar headache.
Centrebet Stadium, Penrith, Saturday 7.30pm (AEST)
GLENN JACKSON It was the upset of the season and, according to some, Penrith's best win in a decade. And it was all done with a squad worth less than half this year's salary cap.
Michael Carayannis After watching his side slump to a second-straight shock loss, Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy said his players had lost their love and passion for football.
