The Panthers and the Cowboys complete round ten of the 2020 NRL season on Sunday afternoon.

The Panthers are rolling and could finish the weekend on top of the ladder if results go their way. The Cowboys have been one of the major disappointments of the season but they miraculously sit just one win outside finals contention.

Panthers Form & Team News

The Panthers have dropped just three points so far this season and look to be one of the true premiership fancies of season 2020. The only loss against ladder-leading arch-rivals Parramatta, and really hit their stride in the romp against the Sharks after a string of hard-fought wins over the Storm, Rabbitohs and Wests Tigers.

Centre Dean Whare returns with Brent Naden moving to the wing in place of Charlie Staines.

Panthers vs Cowboys Match Up

Penrith's Issah Yeo has taken his all-round game to another level in 2020 but this week he goes toe-to-toe with the NRL's premier No.13 in the form of Jason Taumalolo.

Yeo ranks fifth for tackles made and will certainly add a healthy chunk to his tally with Tonga international Taumalolo, who leads the competition for run metres and post-contact metres, running at him all night.
