After a terrible off season the Sea Eagles started the 2012 season looking the goods. Impressive wins against some very good opponents had many suggesting the Sea Eagles would be in with a big chance of retaining their title.
Then, injuries and suspensions started to take the toll, and here we are in round 6 and with the Sea Eagles having lost three games in a row.
On the other side of the field, the Penrith Panthers have probably exceeded expectations so far this season as Ivan Cleary looks to rebuild the club.
Losing last week at home against the Sharks probably took a bit of the wind out of their sails and while they probably lack the ability to put a lot of points on decent opposition, they are certainly no easy beats this season.
This will be the Sea Eagles first home game of the season, and what a time for it to happen. They will be boosted by the return of Jamie Lyon who should help their defense out wide.
You have to favour the Sea Eagles in this game. They really need this win to get their season back on track. If they lose this, making it four losses in a row, it wouldn’t take too much to push their season into free fall.
Just ask the Tigers.
