St George Illawarra Dragons put their season on the line as they attempt to snap the seven-match winning run of the Penrith Panthers on Sunday in NRL Round 25 action at Pepper Stadium.
It’s quite unbelievable that the Dragons and Panthers find themselves in the positions they’re in when you consider their respective starts to the season.
St George Illawarra came firing out of the blocks with a 42-10 victory over Penrith and would ultimately be leading the competition heading into ANZAC Day, while the Panthers were languishing at the foot of the ladder at the same stage after barely winning games over the first two months.
But a mid-season revival for Penrith and an inexplicable form slump for the Dragons has seen the sides head in opposite directions on the ladder, and heading into Sunday’s showdown it’s the Panthers who are set to secure a spot in the finals, while the Dragons need to win to keep their finals chances alive.
With Manly expected to beat the struggling Warriors, the Dragons will be praying the Tigers can knock off North Queensland on Friday night, while they simply must beat Penrith to remain in a relatively decent position to qualify heading into the final round of the season next week.
Penrith meanwhile could potentially climb into fifth spot on the ladder with a win, meaning they could potentially challenge for a top four position next week – something that seemed inconceivable before the Origin period.
St George Illawarra will put up a big fight – and they have won their last three matches against the Panthers – but they haven’t met at the foot of the mountains in three years. Penrith are the better team in better form and that should shine through in the end. The Panthers to wrap up a finals spot and potentially end the Dragons’ season on Sunday.
Matt Moylan is out for the Penrith but Peter Wallace makes his return at hooker, while Nene McDonald and Hame Sele come into the Dragons side for Euan Aitken and Will Matthews.
