Welcome to Panthers Stadium, where the Penrith Panthers host the Canterbury Bulldogs in our second game in our Friday Night Football coverage in what promises to be an interesting clash. The Panthers have one late change, with hooker Peter Wallace ruled out with a neck injury, which sees Sione Katoa start at hooker in jersey #14 and rookie Wade Egan coming onto the interchange in jersey #18. The Bulldogs are 1-17 and as per programmed. Penrith currently sit in 4th position, but are coming off a narrow loss to the Sharks. Canterbury meanwhile sit in 15th after an inconsistent start to 2018. The Panthers go in warm favourites at home, but it is worth noting that the Dogs did defeat Penrith 20-18 in Round 3. Will the Panthers get pay back? Or will the Bulldogs turn up and give them more grief? Stay tuned for all the action @LeagueUnlimited, kickoff not far away!
