  • New Zealand Warriors were poor once again in interim head coach Stacey Jones’ first game in charge and things do not get any easier for them here as they take on reigning premiers and top of the ladder Penrith Panthers.
  • The Warriors were soundly beaten by Cronulla Sharks in what was their sixth defeat in succession and to make matters worse, they have now lost Ben Murdoch-Masila and Euan Aitken to injury, although Addin Fonua-Blake could be a late inclusion from the reserves list while Ronald Volkman will make his NRL debut at five-eighth.

Starting 13: Walsh, Watene-Zelezniak, Arthars, Pompey, Montoya, Volkman, Johnson, Afoa, Egan, Tevaga, Murchie, Harris, Curran – Interchanges: Harris-Tavita, Pene, Lui, Sironen – Reserves: Lussick, Katoa, Berry, Asi, Fonua-Blake

Unavailable: Vailiami Vailea, Euan Aitken, Ben Murdoch-Masila


  • Penrith Panthers extended their winning streak to five matches thanks to earning a big win over Newcastle Knights last week and the reigning premiers are likely to show no signs of giving up top place on the ladder as they take on New Zealand Warriors.
  • Having ran in 42 points in last week’s success, another big win is on the cards for the Panthers against their struggling opponents and they are boosted by the return of influential lock Isaah Yeo after he was left out against the Knights after copping a head knock in Origin.

Starting 13: Edwards, May, Tago, S. Crichton, To’o, Luai, Cleary, Leota, Koroisau, Fisher-Harris, Kikau, Martin, Yeo – Interchanges: Kenny, Sorensen, Leniu, Salmon – Reserves: Jennings, Eisenhuth, C. Smith, Luke, Jenkins



This looks like a mismatch of extreme proportions and that could well be evident come the full-time hooter. New Zealand Warriors have lost their last six while top of the ladder Penrith Panthers have won five-in-a-row. The Panthers have in fact lost just one game all season and it would be the biggest upset of the season if they were not to prevail here. the Warriors have conceded at least 24 points in each of their last six games and that total is likely to be comfortably surpassed here with the Panthers able to cover the -24 handicap.
