The Tigers started the season with a bang with a dominant 34-18 win over rivals South Sydney at ANZ.

The Panthers by contrast were the worst team of Round 1, suffering an embarrassing 42-10 loss to the Dragons. Penrith missed a remarkable 48 tackles with Bryce Cartwright leading the way with seven.
Mitchell Moses v Te Maire Martin. Moses was one of the most improved players in 2016 and will been keen to repay the Tigers faithful after the club decided to hold on to him and let Martin move on. Martin is a dynamic player in attack, but is a liability in defence and was targeted by the Dragons, making 30 tackles for the match.
