Friday, June 5,  6.00 PM, Round 4, Campbelltown Stadium, Penrith Panthers take on New Zealand Warriors NRL Match Preview

It was hard to predict how the New Zealand Warriors would respond after everything they have been through, but they came out against the St George Illawarra Dragons with only one intention, to destroy.

The Warriors showed a lot of character and have sparked some belief in their season for 2020, now they take on a Panthers side that is expected to make the top 4. This will be a great test for the Warriors to see where their mind and skill set is, make no mistake this is a showdown and the forwards who plough the way will set up the win.
