Friday, August 14, 6.00 PM, Round 14, Central Coast Stadium, Central Coast, New Zealand Warriors take on Penrith Panthers NRL Match Preview

The Warriors beginning to turn heads as they paint a path of NRL destruction destroying two teams they shouldn’t have two weeks in a row starting with the Wests Tigers and then the Manly Sea Eagles and they say “Good Things Come In Threes”, Will they set the stage against the Panthers without their power man Jack Hetherington? it’s kinda tough to just write off the Warriors against the Panthers at the moment,  it will be interesting to see what Payten and his Warriors bring the Panthers this Round.
