Father and son go head to head to close out the round as Ivan Cleary looks to put a dent in Nathan Cleary’s finals hopes.

The Tigers head into the clash on the back of a big win over the Titans last week while the Panthers will be seeking maximum points – both on the scoreboard and the ladder – as they look to climb into the top eight.

Panthers skipper Matt Moylan remains no certainty to take his place after a hamstring injury continues to bother him while Moses Leota returns in the number 13 jersey.

The Tigers have given up the third-most points in the competition which doesn’t bode well for them given the Panthers have scored a league-best 25 tries in the last 20 minutes of games in 2017.

While the Tigers have matched sides for a reasonable percentage of time in 2017, their momentary lapses cost them all too often, often losing the battle in the middle of the park, allowing teams to waltz through their defence. Their attack remains potent and extremely dangerous when on song and there’s no doubt they’ll look to target the at times sloppy defence that Penrith possesses.

While Ivan would’ve taught Nathan a lot of what he knows, we can see that coming back to bite him this time around with the Panthers chalking up a comfortable win.

Panthers by 10.
