NRL Match Previews - Brisbane v Penrith (Round 4)
01-04-2011 08:45PM at Suncorp Stadium
Referee: Jason Robinson and Chris James
Difficult to pin point exactly what the problem is out at Penrith. An indifferent start to the season has them under the rugby league media spotlight and has their coach facing questions about his job security. One thing is certain though, it does not get any easier with a new halfback and hooker combination and it gets even harder when you face the Brisbane Broncos at home, 2 days after Darren Lockyer announces his impending retirement.
Touch Judges: Daniel Eastwood and Gavin Morris
Referee: Steve Clark
So, with a seemingly impossible task set and the bookies against them to the tune of 8.5 points, the Panthers walk into Suncorp Stadium on Friday night with a mountain to climb. No doubt they will give it everything they have but eventually their foothold will slip, the ropes will give way, the landslide will come down quickly and I will run out of exaggerated metaphors. The Broncos too good.
