New Zealand Warriors vs Penrith Panthers Preview
More often than not, the Warriors have continued to play competitively without getting the result, and they’d surely need to go to a new level to even compete with the Penrith Panthers.
The Warriors lost to the Sharks in Round 17, the Dragons in Round 16 and the Knights in Round 15. All games were close(ish), and they loomed as a winning chance in each, but failed to get the result.
The Panthers have hardly faltered, even during the Origin period, and they are justifiable favourites again in Round 18.
I’m sure that Ivan Cleary will rest some players, while other remain out with injury, but the Panthers’ depth really has been the difference this year and they can win again.
