THE FRONT ROW: Volume 1 Issue 16

Here it is - the latest edition of The Front Row, our exclusive online e-magazine with a full wrap on last weekend's NRL along with the match programme for the coming weekend of action!

This weekend Penrith and Parramatta duel in the 'Battle of the West' for the 100th time, so our edition focuses on this with Paul Jobber speaking to Josh Mansour about the Panthers' title charge, while Josh Robertson looks at the history of the Panthers-Eels rivalry. Rick Edgerton's finals build-up column this week takes stock of who the X-factors might be in October.

Add to that all the regular features you've come to expect - a full NRL Round 18 programme - and you have one fantastic 36-page magazine for your weekend's reading!
