The top of the table is again in focus on Saturday night with the Roosters and Panthers squaring off at Suncorp.

The tri-colours edged their way into the top four last week with a gutsy shutout victory over the Eels, while the Panthers suffered a humbling loss at the hands of the Storm that has left last year’s runner-ups with plenty to think about heading towards the finals.

The Roosters have spent most of the season overcoming injury and they’ll need to do that again with Josh Morris likely to miss the next month.

The Panthers also look likely to spend another week without Nathan Cleary, although there is some positive news on the Isaah Yeo front.

Aside from the scoreboard, Penrith was no match for the Storm defensively last week missing 39 tackles in the loss.

There’s no question Ivan Cleary will be asking more from his side, but it’s also tough to read too much into one game against the current premiership favourites.

Verdict

If Morris was playing, the current double-digit line would probably be slimmer, but with the Roosters missing one of their key on-field leaders, this does look Penrith’s game to lose.
