Penrith Panthers vs Wests Tigers Preview
The Panthers are favoured heavily to extend their club record winning streak to 11 on Saturday when they take on a Tigers team growing more and more desperate as the weeks go by.
Wests currently sit ninth on the ladder and four points adrift of the eighth-placed Sharks.
The Tigers do have time on their side, but the positives have been far and few in recent weeks with only one win from their last five games.
Aside from their streak, Penrith’s biggest win this season has been their luck with injury.
Hooker Api Koroisau picked up a calf injury last week in the win over the Sharks and now joins a very short list of players on the sidelines.
The Tigers are also close to full-strength for Saturday’s clash, but it’s difficult to back Wests with any confidence based on last week’s first half no-show against the Roosters.
Michael Maguire’s side put up a brave fight against the Panthers back in Round 8 losing 19-12, but this time its an entirely different test down in Penrith.
The Panthers are undefeated at Panthers Stadium and have won three of their four games by double digits.
This is a lengthy line, but we’re confident Penrith can cover it.
