The 'Wild Panther' Mark Geyer joined the Triple M Grill team to talk all things footy from a pulsating first round. 

It was a round that saw the Wests Tigers upset Premiership favourites the Sydney Roosters, the Warriors smash the Bunnies in Perth and the Panthers win the 'battle of the west' against the Eels. 

AND to top an already incredible first week of footy, the Titans produced a stunning come-from-behind victory over the Raiders after a disastrous opening 20 minutes. 

The Raiders were cruising, leading 24-6 after the first 25 minutes and looked in one of those moods, where they could put 40 on a hapless Titans. 

HOWEVER, the Titans persevered to mount a serious comeback and would go on to score in the dying moments via Konrad Hurrell and subsequent match-winning conversion from club debutant Michael Gordon to seal a 30-28 win. 

Although, the shaky start seem to have new coach Garth Brennan a little worried. 

MG texted the former Panthers NSW Cup coach and couldn't believe the message Brennan sent back.
