PANTHERS MAILBAG

Anthony Griffin has left the door open for Dallin Watene-Zelezniak to be a late inclusion and it is believed that Griffin will give Watene-Zelezniak up until game time to declare his fitness. Dylan Edwards would make way if Watene-Zelezniak gets given the green light.

Off-field distractions cast a cloud over the availability of Bryce Cartwright for round 2, but coach Anthony Griffin insist he is a certain starter for the Tigers clash.
