New Zealand Warriors vs Penrith Panthers Preview

The immediate signs of improvement following Nathan Brown’s exit were minor at best, with the Warriors racing to a 12-0 lead over Cronulla before crumbling in trademark fashion to lose 38-16.

Untimely errors and shabby edge defence were the familiar catalysts for the Warriors’ eighth loss in nine games.

But Stacey Jones has rung the changes this week, handing hyped half Ronald Volkman a debut and relegating Chanel Harris-Tavita a bench utility role.

Meanwhile, Jesse Arthars mercifully returns at centre for the struggling Rocco Berry and Addin Fonua-Blake looks likely to come back after being named in the reserves.

The bad news is the Warriors are hosting a Penrith side on an absolute rampage. Chastened from a tough night out in the Origin series opener, Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai toyed with Newcastle in a 42-6 drubbing on Sunday.

The Panthers are an eye-watering 13-1 with all but one of their wins coming by 12-plus margins and Isaah Yeo is back after being rested from the Knights clash.

The Panthers have won their last four against the Warriors, but the last two clashes witnessed arguably the Warriors’ gutsiest performances of the previous two seasons.

They held the runaway premiers to 18-12 in 2020 and got off to a flyer in Round 18 last year and lost only 30-16 despite a raft of injuries.

Some are clambering to predict a record-breaking scoreline on Saturday night – and the Warriors’ NRL-worst defensive record (28 points per game conceding) makes for horrific reading.

The Panthers’ outside backs will be licking their lips at the prospect of steaming through the custom-made gaps on the Warriors’ fringes.

The Panthers haven’t posted more than 42 points this season, but it will take a significant lift from the Warriors to merely cover one of the biggest lines of the 2022 campaign.
