Panthers NRL v Titans

Carrington Park, Bathurst
Saturday 14th March
Kickoff: 4.30pm

The Panthers head back to in Bathurst this weekend to face the Gold Coast Titans in front of a big country crowd at Carrington Park!

This is the second of a five year deal between the Panthers and Bathurst Council to showcase first grade rugby league in country NSW.

We’re expecting a large crowd at the recently renovated ground, and after last weekend’s nail-biting 24-18 win over the Bulldogs, the Penrith side will be keen for a strong showing against the Titans.

We didn’t have any major injuries after round 1 so Ivan Cleary has been able to name the same team as last week. NRL debutants George Jennings and Reagan Campbell-Gillard will get another chance to prove they can keep up with the best of them when they run out in the same jerseys on Saturday.

Captain Peter Wallace will be keen to get onto the field and cast away any doubts about the playing surface; this was of course, the ground where he suffered his season ending ACL injury in round 20 last year.

The Titans will be trying to put a week of turmoil behind them when they arrive in town and they’ll be hungry for their first win, after going down to Wests Tigers by 1 point last weekend.

We’re keen to see former Panther Kierran Moseley run out in his new Gold Coast colours, and it will be a very interesting contest between him and superstar hooker James Segeyaro.

After the game on Saturday, the Panthers will be heading back to Bathurst Leagues Club for a meet and greet with members and fans, and we would love to see you all there!

PENRITH PANTHERS | Matt Moylan, George Jennings, Dean Whare, Jamal Idris, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Jamie Soward, Peter Wallace, Sam Mckendry, James Segeyaro, Brent Kite, Sika Manu, Lewis Brown, Elijah Taylor, Tyrone Peachey, Jeremy Latimore, Reagan Campbell-Gillard, Bryce Cartwright, Isaah Yeo. 

 

Panthers NSW Cup v North Sydney Bears

Carrington Park, Bathurst
Saturday 14th March
Kickoff: 2.15pm

Penrith’s NSW Cup team will be ready and raring to go this weekend when they take on the North Sydney Bears at Carrington Park in Bathurst.

After holding on for a 26-20 win over the Bulldogs last weekend, the Panthers are planning to put on a good show for the Bathurst locals in the NRL curtain-raiser on Saturday.

It won’t be an easy task for us though, after the Bears put 30 points on Wentworthville in round 1 and proved they could be a force to be reckoned with this year.

Coach Garth Brennan has been forced to make a couple of changes to his side after Kieran Moss broke his foot last weekend. He has moved Will Smith into the fullback position and Eddie Aiono comes on the wing.

Penrith will run out with a very strong forward pack who will be hoping for a repeat performance of last week; Ben Murdoch-Masila was dangerous running the ball and bagged a well- deserved try from a combination of barnstorming hit-ups, while Adam Docker was at his wrecking-ball best.

PENRITH PANTHERS | Will Smith, Christian Crichton, Robert Jennings, Waqa Blake, Eddie Aiono, Isaac John, Adrian Davis, Sam Anderson, Liam Ayoub, Leilani Latu, Topou Sopoaga, Ben Murdoch-Masila, Adam Docker, Andy Saunders, Rodney Coates, James Fisher-Harris, Nu’u Akeripa, Chris Smith. 

 

Panthers NYC v Titans

Carrington Park, Bathurst
Saturday 14th March
Kickoff: 12.10pm

On the back of an impressive victory against the Bulldogs, Panthers NYC coach Cam Ciraldo has named a very similar squad to play the Gold Coast in Bathurst on Saturday.

Our youngsters were impressive last weekend and showed they will be serious contenders for a top 8 spot if they keep up that form and discipline throughout the season. The Titans are also coming off a round 1 win after they defeated Wests Tigers.

The Panthers try scoring prospects were on display last week with Soni Luke and Logan Geyer putting in stellar performances. Tyrone May controlled the team well, while Oli Clark was very destructive in attack.

Coach Cam Ciraldo will be looking for a little more focus in his side this week after a few silly errors and sloppy ball work cost us points last Sunday. He will be looking to open up the Titans defence and use the speed of our centres and wingers to get us over the line.

Taking the NYC game to Bathurst this weekend is a great way to showcase our up-and-coming talent to our country fans, and show them the players we are planning to develop here in Penrith.

PENRITH PANTHERS | Tyrone May, Manu Enise, Brent Naden, Jack Nelson, Joshua Jay, Logan Geyer, Soni Luke, Sione Katoa, Oliver Clark, Elkander Fairouz, Dave Cowhan, Dylan Fuad, Kade Ellis, Paea Pua, Thompson Tuigamala, Maliko Filino, Dylan Edwards.
