Theyre giving up almost 100 games in finals experience, 70kg in weight and another 100 centimetres in height.But to Penrith prop Leilani Latu, theyre just numbers.And the only ones that matter are those on the scoreboard at fulltime of Sundays NRL elimination final against Canterbury at Allianz Stadium.Its a mental thing for us. Besides Melbourne this year, weve competed against every pack that weve come up against even though weight-wise were not really there, Latu told AAP.To us, theyre just numbers. On the day, itll depend on which forward pack can get it over the other. It doesnt matter if youre taller, bigger or heavier than us, well contend every minute.While the Panthers finished one spot higher than the Bulldogs at the end of the regular season, the week-one finals hosts lag on a number of key categories against their rivals.Canterbury boast a combined 117 finals games worth of experience compared to Penriths 23; a total 1000kg against the Panthers 934kg; and 1524cm to their rivals 1441cm.The key return of Sam Kasiano from his two-game ban for kicking means the Bulldogs have five players over 110kg, compared to Penrith who have only Latu.So on paper, the Bulldogs much-vaunted forward pack has it all over the the Panthers.Penrith star Trent Merrin said it wasnt just their oppositions renowned size that made them arguably the most dangerous forward pack in the competition.Their size, their brutality and their skill factor that they have amongst that middle pack, he said.Theyre like halves in big bodies. Youve just got to be on your toes and be ready to grind and play that tough style of footy against them.He said Canterburys advantage in finals know-how is also critical, calling the Belmore-based outfit also one of the most consistent teams in the league.They keep putting themselves in that position every year and the more you play in it, the better you get, Merrin said.Theyve just been building that consistency over the years and they feel real comfortable in that sort of arena.BIG DOGS AGAINST THE TOP CATS (Forwards over 110kg):Bulldogs:* Greg Eastwood - 112kg* David Klemmer - 116kg* Sam Kasiano - 130kg* Tim Browne - 111kg* Tony Williams - 120kgPanthers* Leilani Latu - 115kg Youth USA Basketball Jerseys .

"We had to dig deep with our fighting spirit and weve done that," United striker Wayne Rooney said. Authentic Team USA Basketball Jerseys . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night. http://www.cheapteamusabasketballjerseys.com/ . Wall made the comment in a speech to a Regina business crowd that included Lesnar.

Swingman Team USA Basketball Jerseys .ca NBA Power Rankings, ahead of the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. STILLWATER, Okla. -- Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said he wasnt worried when his Cowboys fell 17 points behind Iowa State in the third quarter.His explosive up-tempo offense showed why. James Washington caught eight passes for 152 yards and two touchdowns, and Oklahoma State beat Iowa State 38-31 on Saturday afternoon.The Cowboys trailed 31-14 with 5:55 left in the third quarter, but Washington put Oklahoma State ahead for good when he caught a 3-yard touchdown pass from Mason Rudolph with 3:40 remaining in the fourth. The 17-point comeback tied for the second largest in OSU history.We can score fast, Gundy said. If we were in a conventional offense, we would have been in trouble. Because we have the ability to score really fast, and we have playmakers who can pick up big chunks of yards, I didnt feel that way. But I didnt feel very good either.Rudolph passed for 351 yards and four touchdowns for Oklahoma State (4-2, 2-1 Big 12). Though the Cowboys gained 459 total yards, Gundy was disappointed in the teams offensive production. The Cowboys were held to 108 yards rushing, and most of that was gained in the final 20 minutes.We got a little bit impatient in the first half, Gundy said. Sometimes that happens. Even right now, I dont feel very good about the way we performed on offense. I thought we were very fortunate to come out of this with a win.It was the second consecutive late collapse for Iowa State (1-5, 0-3). The Cyclones were trying to bounce back after a heartbreaking last-second 45-42 loss to No. 13 Baylor last Saturday and get the first conference victory for first-year coach Matt Campbell.I thought it was a gutsy performance, but we just have to learn to finish, and thats part of what were doing, Campbell said.David Montgomerys 1-yard touchdown run with 2:58 left in the second quarter put Iowa State up 17-14. The Cyclones nearly doubled time of possession in the first half and ran 55 plays to Oklahoma States 32.Joel Lanning threw touchdown passes to Trever Ryen and Allen Lazard to help Iowa State take a 17-point lead in the third quarter.I warned my team lasst week about Iowa State and the ability they had to move the football, Gundy said.dddddddddddd(Their) quarterbacks are good players and they spread you out and are good runners. Theyve got good schemes on both sides of the ball, and they made some real nice adjustments on us.Rudolph threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Washington, then a 1-yard touchdown scoring toss to Jalen McCleskey, to help the Cowboys trim Iowa States lead to 31-28 early in the fourth quarter. Oklahoma States Ben Grogan made a 30-yard field goal to tie the score at 31 with 11:33 to play.THE TAKEAWAYIOWA STATE: The Cyclones proved once again that they are competitive, but arent quite there yet. They got solid quarterback play at times from Lanning and Jacob Park, but neither was consistent, and they were sacked a combined seven times.We have the capability and skill set, its more of a process of learning how to execute and learning how to win, Iowa State cornerback Brian Peavy said.OKLAHOMA STATE: The Cowboys built on their victory over Texas the previous week and enter their off week with momentum.Its good to see your guys keep fighting, Rudolph said. I dont know how many points we were down, but this place was kind of dead. The defense played a great game in the second half and got us some stops and turnovers that were much needed. We didnt turn the ball over, which was big for us. We just kept fighting.POLL IMPLICATIONSOklahoma State was 32nd in votes in the most recent poll and likely will be knocking on the door of the Top 25.UP NEXTIOWA STATE: The Cyclones play at Texas next Saturday. The Longhorns have has allowed 50, 49 and 45 points in their past three games. Iowa State could deal a severe blow to struggling Texas coach Charlie Strong with a win.OKLAHOMA STATE: The Cowboys are off next week. They will play at Kansas on Oct. 22. Gundy said it is a good time for a bye week because several of his players are dinged up.---Follow Cliff Brunt on Twitter (at)CliffBruntAP .
