After upsetting Melbourne last weekend, the Penrith Panthers  can register back-to-back wins for the first time this season when they tackle the New Zealand Warriors  on Saturday night. Unsurprisingly, coach Ivan Cleary has named an unchanged lineup for Penrith following that result, while the Warriors are also unchanged despite relinquishing a 16 point lead against the Bulldogs last week to go down 24-16.

The Panthers may have won the most recent meeting between these sides, at Mt Smart Stadium in round 24 last season, but New Zealand has had the wood over them lately. They had one four in a row against Penrith prior to that result but haven’t had much joy in Australia of late, losing on the past eight occasions that they have crossed the Tasman.
