The Panthers got back to winning ways last week with a six-point win over the Roosters as they now try and close out the season inside the top two.

Penrith’s completion rate was outstanding last week, while Ivan Cleary’s men also did a fantastic job forcing errors at key points in the game.

If the Panthers can replicate that performance it’s a recipe for success this week against a Dragons side that continues to slide down the ladder behind four consecutive losses.

While the Saints hung tough with the Raiders last week, they again failed to score more than 20 points for the fifth game in a row.

Teams that struggle to find points tend to do very poorly against the Panthers, which largely explains the -18.5 point line on offer.

Verdict

The Panthers have won two of their last three games over St George by double digits, so this one has all the makings of a blowout.
