The Panthers had to work hard for victory in the first meeting. But this should be a much more routine victory with Penrith tipped to cover the handicap.

  • Penrith Panthers have won 32 of their last 35 games.
  • Penrith Panthers have won their last 3 games.
  • Penrith Panthers have won the last 2 matches against Brisbane Broncos.
  • Brisbane Broncos have lost 5 of their last 6 matches.

Head to Head

Brisbane Broncos have had the better of the Penrith Panthers in recent times, winning four of the last six meetings. But the last two have gone the way of Penrith.

The Panthers won 25-12 at Suncorp last season and then came from behind to win 20-12 in Brisbane in Round 6 this season.

Penrith Panthers Form

Penrith have reacted in the best possible way to back-to-back losses in June by winning the last three matches in a row.

The Panthers enter the weekend behind Melbourne Storm on points differential alone after victories over Sydney Roosters, Parramatta Eels and New Zealand Warriors.

Last week, they produced a masterclass either side of half-time to come from behind to win 30-16.

Penrith Panthers Team News

Penrith have named Jarome Luai at five-eighth despite suffering a knee injury.

Luai's inclusion sees Matt Burton move back to the centres this season, pushing Brent Naden down to the reserves.

Nathan Cleary is still absent due to a shoulder injury, but could return next week.
