Penrith Panthers vs Cronulla Sharks Preview
Nobody in their right mind is going to back against the Panthers here, how could you justify it after their perfect start to the season?
The question is how much faith do you have in the Panthers defence to clamp down on the Sharks.
Since their 48 point explosion over the Cowboys the Sharks have really hit the wall managing just 66 total points in the last four games.
It’s not great reading when they come up against the best defence in the NRL, the Panthers have given up just 60 points to date.
I’ll back the Penrith defence to tighten up and keep the Sharks in single digits as they record a comfortable win.
