Preview

While most teams started their season in round one, Penrith tried a different approach and began last week. A 42-10 loss in round one was turned upside down last week with a 36-2 win that reaffirmed punters of their premiership hopes. This week, they face the 2-0 Roosters who have been led superbly by new recruit Luke Keary.

Back to back best on ground performances by Keary have the Roosters looking like a shadow of their 2016 self.

A big battle of the forward packs entices fans in arguably the game of the round.

The Roosters have the equal best offence in the league while the Panthers conceded just two points last week against a side who scored 34 points in week one. If the Panthers can find that balance again, they will be hard to stop at home.
