Stacey Jones has taken charge of a flock of lambs heading to the slaughter.
It is impossible to see this going any other way than a massive Penrith win. The Panthers have been relentless of late and have really put to bed their recent flatness away from Penrith Stadium.
The Panthers have now covered six of seven when favoured by more than 16.5 while they have covered six of nine off scoring 40-plus. Penrith have also covered 13 of 18 against the Warriors.
New Zealand have covered just four of 19 off conceding 20-plus and are poor as a big underdog.
The Panthers really win this by as much as they want and against a rookie half on neutral territory Penrith will likely be in a party mood.
Same Game Multi
May has 13 tries in 13 appearances this year and has scored in Penrith’s last three games.
To’o has returned from injury and a switch to the right to score three tries in his last two appearances.
Kikau has scored four tries in his last eight games including one in each of the last two weeks.
This is full on Ric Flair but this game has every possibility of getting right away from the Warriors. Penrith have scored 30-plus in seven of 10 games and can score quickly. The Warriors have conceded at least 24 in six straight and 38 in their last two and were beaten 70-10 earlier in the season by the Storm.
