Player cut:

Late Mail: The Panthers have named their Origin stars but foxsports.com.au understands coach Ivan Cleary will take a cautious approach. Nathan Cleary was sporting a swollen eye after the game and with his shoulder injury history the Panthers may decide to hold him out. Sean O’Sullivan would slot in to replace him and has proved a more than handy back up already. Liam Martin played 80 minutes while isaah yeo suffered a brutal blow on the first tackle of the game. He stayed on the field and told reporters afterwards he did not believe he was concussed but the Panthers will monitor his condition.
