In breaking team news, Panthers back-rower Bryce Cartwright looks like he won’t play for the Panthers against Knights at Pepper Stadium this Friday.
“Hearing Bryce Cartwright likely to be out of @PenrithPanthers team again this week,” reports Channel Nine rugby league reporter Danny Weidler.
Cartwright was expected to join the team after returning to the paddock on Tuesday for the first time since he injured his ankle.
This means Tyrone Peachey is likely to be moved into the second row.
Meanwhile injured winger Josh Mansour's recovery from a knee surgery remains on track, with the Australian representative allowed more movement in training this week ahead of his anticipated mid-season return.
