Penrith continued their impeccable start to the season, which has seen no losses to date, with a dominant 26-0 victory over New Zealand Warriors.
Panthers’ half-backs were unstoppable, collectively scoring all first-half points.
Matt Burton, in-place of suspended Nathan Cleary, finished off a shift to get first points and chased his charge-down, showing his electric pace.
Jerome Luai capped off the half with inventive brilliance – an individual kick and chase from his left boot.
HT: Panthers 16-0 Warriors
Billy Burns continued Penrith’s decimation as he ran a perfect line before weaving around Roger Tuivasa-Sheck with ease.
Patrick Herbert did seek an unimaginable consolation in the closing stages by acrobatically pouncing on a bobbling ball but unfortunately, his foot was in-touch.
