The New Zealand Warriors will look to continue their good recent form against the ladder-leading Penrith Panthers at the Central Coast Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores from 6pm (AEST).
The Warriors have found a new gear over the last three weeks, pushing the all-conquering Roosters all the way in a gallant 18-10 loss, before netting upset wins over both Wests Tigers and Manly. They’ll be chasing their first three-game winning streak since going 5-0 to start 2018.
Standing in their way are the first-place Panthers, who extended their winning run to eight matches last week with another impressive performance – a comprehensive 28-12 victory over the Canberra Raiders. With plenty of teams breathing down their neck, Penrith can’t afford a slip-up here.
The Warriors have a poor recent record against the Panthers, losing six of the last eight meetings – including a 26-0 drubbing earlier this year. After winning their first three matches at their adopted home on the Central Coast, they’ve lost their last two. This will be Penrith’s second ever visit to the Central Coast Stadium and their first since 2002.
