Penrith Panthers and Wests Tigers look to bounce back from poor last-start defeats when they square off in NRL Round 4 action on Friday night.
This clash between the Panthers and Tigers takes on extra meaning on Friday night as Ivan Cleary comes up against his former club as coach for the first time.
So far, it hasn’t been a successful transition for the Panthers. Touted as premiership favourites at the start of the season, Penrith have lost two of their three matches and look anything but a clicking unit.
Of course, there’s no shame in losing to a clinical Melbourne outfit as they did in Bathurst last week, but it was the manner in which they were defeated, failing to score a try and leaking 30 points, most of which came in the second half as the Panthers switched off.
Time is on Penrith’s side and they will remember their slow start from last season before rampaging into the finals, but they’d rather not rely on a mid-season surge this time around. Can they get back on track against the Tigers?
Michael Maguire’s team were flying high near the top of the table coming into Round 3 last week, but they were brought crashing back down to earth as they were comprehensively outplayed by Canterbury – the team most are backing for the wooden spoon.
The Tigers simply didn’t turn up last week and they were made to pay the price as they lost their first game of the season by a 22-8 scoreline.
To make matters worse, resurgent veteran Benji Marshall suffered a hamstring injury and will miss this clash, but that does open the door for Josh Reynolds to get a chance at rejoining the team alongside Luke Brooks in the halves.
Penrith have won the last four meetings between the teams, but this clash looms as a toss-up. Both sides were flat last week and will be determined for an immediate response. The Tigers for me were more of a disappointment considering the team they were playing – if the Panthers can improve their dismal completion rate from last week (58 per cent), they should be able to grind out a win at home.
