Round 21 – Penrith Panthers vs Cronulla Sharks, Panthers Stadium
Panthers run home: Bulldogs (A), Sharks (H), Broncos (A), Cowboys (A), Roosters (A), Knights (H)
An excellent mid-season has spared Penrith from being wooden spoon contenders, to become top eight hopefuls. If they can overcome their bogey team, Cronulla Sharks in round 21 they are well on their way to playing finals footy. Penrith have won just two of the last fourteen matches against the Sharks even though three of the last four have been with a winning margin four points or less.
