Friday, 2nd of October, 7:50 PM, NRL Finals Week 1, Panthers Stadium, Penrith, Penrith Panthers versus Sydney Roosters NRL Match Fixture

These clubs head into game one of the finals after finishing the regular season at opposite ends of the spectrum. Last week saw the Roosters produce one of their worst performances in modern history against a red hot South Sydney side who put 60 points on them, while the Panthers proved why they’re competition favourites easily winning their 15th game in a row against the Bulldogs. The Roosters will need to bounce back immediately as Penrith at home is going to be very tough topple.
