A top four Saturday night clash at the SCG headlines round 11 of the 2022 NRL season as premiers Penrith Panthers travel to Moore Park to take on the Sydney Roosters. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 7.35pm AEST.

After a shaky start to the season which included shock losses to St George and the Bulldogs, the Roosters have slowly clicked into gear following wins against Gold Coast Titans and Parramatta Eels. Now back into the top four, the Roosters will want to stamp their authority and remain there. However, they will miss the services of Victor Radley, with the Roosters star set to miss 6-8 weeks with an ankle injury.

The halves pairing of Sam Walker and Luke Keary is starting to gel and the pair are starting to get the best out of each other. The individual brilliance of James Tedesco and Joseph Manu has gotten the Roosters out of trouble at times this season, but the boys from Bondi will need a collective effort to topple the Panthers.

Penrith have continued their outstanding work from last season as their outstanding defence has seen them rise to the top of the table this year. Conceding an average of 11.6 points a game thus far, the Panthers have shown that they are not easy to break down. The Panthers remain unchanged from their Magic Round victory, although head coach Ivan Cleary will be back in the coaching sheds following a knee infection.

Prediction

Premierships aren’t won in May and this clash will be a learning curve for both teams as the Origin period is set to dawn upon us.

However, the Roosters will need a Herculean effort to defeat a powerful Panthers outfit despite the home ground advantage. Penrith’s only loss this season was when they conceded more than 20 points against Parramatta and I can’t see the Roosters repeating the Eels’ effort.

Penrith by 8.
