Penrith Panthers vs Newcastle Knights Preview

The Panthers and Knights were unable to be separated when they met last May in Campbelltown, and there’s a good chance Thursday’s game turns out almost as close.

Still undefeated, the Panthers head into Round 7 as the heavy favourites after coming from 12 points down to defeat the Broncos last week.

Although the Panthers’ second-half response was impressive, there’s no doubt Ivan Cleary’s side will need to turn up at the opening whistle against this dangerous Knights team.

Newcastle kept its top eight hopes alive last week with a rousing last-second win over the Sharks – a performance the Knights can certainly build upon as they begin to add some troops back into the fold.

Hymel Hunt looks set to miss this clash after suffering a hamstring last week, but after Kalyn Ponga’s heroics against Cronulla, there’s certainly a chance the Knights give this a shake.

In the last two weeks we’ve seen the Panthers fall behind early against the Raiders and Broncos, only to come storming home in the second half.

If the Knights can get their share of the ball early and also limit the mistakes, they are a much better chance of at least keeping this game close than the line suggests.
