The Panthers get their star players back and will be fired up at home. The Roosters haven’t won three in a row all season and are unlikely to make that happen in Penrith.

  • Penrith Panthers have won their last 13 home games.
  • Penrith Panthers have won by 18+ points in their last 4 home games.
  • Penrith Panthers have won 12 of their last 14 games.
  • Penrith Panthers have won 3 of their last 4 games against Sydney Roosters.
  • Sydney Roosters have conceded 84 points in their last 3 games.

Head to Head


Sydney Roosters have a 60-38 advantage against Penrith Panthers with three draws in 99 games. 

Penrith won both encounters last season, 20-14 in Round 1 and 29-28 in the qualifying final.

Penrith Panthers Form


Penrith won their opening 12 games of the season. They regularly demolished teams in that run including beating Manly 46-6, Cronulla 48-0, Gold Coast 48-12, South Sydney 56-12 and Canterbury 30-4.

Ivan Cleary’s side suffered before and after the first State of Origin which robbed them of their top players. 

The Panthers suffered a 26-6 defeat against West Tigers at Leichardt before a 19-18 loss against Cronulla where they came back from 18-0 down.

Sydney Roosters Form


Sydney Roosters have been inconsistent this season, failing to win three straight games. They have struggles to get any momentum going with players retiring and getting injured.

Trent Robinson’s side recently suffered a shock 34-16 defeat to Brisbane at the SCG.

The Roosters bounced back with a 44-16 win against Canberra on the Central Coast. They won 35-34 against Gold Coast last week thanks to a late Matt Ikuvalu try and Sam Walker field goal.

James Tedesco (hip) returns at fullback which means Joseph Manu moves to the centres and Joseph Suaalii drops out. 

Sam Verrills (eye) returns on the bench with Ben Marschke (suspension) out for two weeks. Sio Siua Taukeiaho is back in the side at prop. 

Sam Walker (shoulder) has been named and is expected to play.
