GAME ON. Warriors kick off, Penrith ball first up.

Kickoff not far away for these sides... both sides really must win to be a serious chance of jumping into the eight. The Warriors are still in the running regardless but will face an uphill battle, while the Panthers are talking mathematics. The home side is in their normal black jersey with white and red vees, while the Panthers have taken to their Pink strip again, indicating their could be an alternate jersey change in 2014...

TEAM NEWS is in for this one, the Panthers have made a few changes. Matt Moylan is OUT, with Lachlan Coote named at fullback in jersey 20. Jeremy Latimore will start with Tim Grant dropping back to the bench. The new player on the bench is Nathan Smith in 18.

Just one change for the hosts, with Suaia Matagi starting at prop, Ben Matulino to the bench. Jerome Ropati won't play.
