It's only a matter of hours until kick-off in tonight's crucial match between the Penrith Panthers and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles. Penrith are looking good to return to the winners circle with a couple of good performances in recent times and their team starting to look its normal self with players overcoming injuries. The match is essentially a four-point game heading into the bye next week. The Panthers have won three of the past four games against the Eagles and would hold high hopes of getting the points again tonight. Check these two recent wins.
In amongst the wins is one loss in Round 26 of 2014 that would still be burning in the minds of fans and players alike.
This one was almost as heartbreaking as the loss to the Broncos last week and despite beating Manly already this season, another victory with an almost full-strength side would be all the more satisfying. James Segeyaro is guaranteed to have a big game on his return and Matt Moylan will again be pushing hard for representative selection. Jamie Soward will be better for the run last week.
How confident are that the Panthers can get up tonight? It's going to be a great match, and could be an exciting high-scoring affair considering their recent history.
