Mounties Coach Stephen Antonelli has named his side for the Round 5 clash with the Penrith Panthers on Saturday at 3:15pm at Sportingbet Stadium.

Mounties are unbeaten and sitting on top of the VB NSW Cup ladder, a statistic they wish to keep intact when they face the Panthers in the curtain raiser to the NRL match. 

Antonelli was able to name a similar side to the one that defeated North Sydney Bears in Round 4 however Mounties will have to do without the stellar services of back-rower Jake Foster who has been promoted to 18th man in the Raiders NRL line-up. 

After scoring six tries in his four appearances Foster will prove a huge loss to Mounties on the left edge however they have a very capable replacement in Raiders forward Lagi Setu. 

The full team line-up is:

1. Joey Bond

2. Gus Aiga

3. Jeremy Hawkins

4. Mosese Pangai

5. Sami Sauiluma

6. Matt Place

7. Mitch Cornish

8. Kyle O’Donnell

9. Matt McIlwrick

10. Tom Learoyd-Lahrs

11. Lagi Setu

12. Mark Nicholls

13. Clay Priest


14. Mitch Cahalane

15. Kurt Horton

16. Rodney Coates

17. Reece Goldsmith

18. Francis Vaiotu
