Preview

Penrith more-or-less dominated last week’s match up against Melbourne and came up on the wrong end of a 28-6 score line.

Should they manage to hold on to 58% of the ball again this week, you’d think they’d come away with the points but will have to do so without captain Matt Moylan along with Peta Hiku and Waqa Blake who were dropped following a breach of team protocol. Centre Tyrone Peachey also misses with a broken rib.

The inconsistent Rabbitohs welcome back George Burgess after a disappointing display against North Queensland last week. For the second week in succession, they put just one try on the board and will need halves pairing Adam Reynolds and Cody Walker to work a bit of magic to kerb the flamboyant Panthers attack.

With the Panthers missing a host of stars, this has proven to be a tricky one to pick but Penrith should have enough class elsewhere to return to the winner’s list.
