- Penrith Panthers will believe that the minor premiership is still within sight after overcoming top four rivals South Sydney Rabbitohs last week and with Melbourne Storm losing to Parramatta Eels on Saturday, a win here would see the Panthers go level on points with the Storm.
- They will be eager to apply some pressure on the league leaders by recording a big win here and having won their last three as well as seven of their last eight, the Panthers will be confident of gaining revenge for their shock 26-6 loss to Wests Tigers earlier in the year.

- Wests Tigers lost to Cronulla Sharks in a hugely disappointing display when their season was on the line and that defeat all but ends their hopes of making a late charge of making the finals.
- Wests had won their last two but they crumbled under the pressure of attempting to make it three straight successes as they shipped 50 points against the Sharks, a side the Tigers were hoping to overhaul in the top eight.
Penrith Panthers produced a solid display to bolster their hopes of
making the Grand Final once again as they overcame top four rivals South
Sydney Rabbitohs last week. They will look to build on that against a
struggling Wests Tigers outfit whose season looks set for real
disappointment once again. They fell apart defensively against Cronulla
Sharks last week and with the Panthers capable of putting them to the
sword, this could get messy for the Tigers who look set to lose by at
least 24 points.
