Sharpen attack, Panthers told

Aap
Wednesday, April 16, 2014

SYDNEY - Livewire hooker James Segeyaro says Penrith need to sharpen their attack if they are to challenge the NRL's top sides.

The Panthers have impressed so far in 2014 but have struggled in attack somewhat with their new combinations, only scoring more points than last-placed Cronulla.

Despite a glut of possession in South Sydney's 20m zone early last Friday night the Panthers couldn't find the tryline, a major contributor to their 18-2 loss.

Segeyaro says the Panthers' spine, including halves Jamie Soward and Peter Walsh and starting hooker Kevin Kingston, have to do better in their round seven clash against competition leaders the Gold Coast at Penrith on Monday.

"Our spine, Jamie Soward, Wal, me, Kevvy, the blokes that handle the ball the most, in the first-half (against Souths) it looked a bit panicked, we didn't really attack the line the way we wanted to," Segeyaro said.
