Last played: Roosters v Panthers

NRL.com Sun, May 05, 2013 - 8:00 AM
Penrith’s victory over the Roosters at Centrebet Stadium in Round 20 last season – their second win against the Bondi boys in 2012 – didn’t come without controversy. Perhaps the most 'memorable' aspect of the game was the send-off of interchange player Travis Burns, who was marched for an intentional high tackle on Roosters prop Martin Kennedy – after earlier being placed on report for a ‘chicken wing’ tackle.

The Panthers’ eventual 28-16 victory came off the back of dominant performances from halfback Luke Walsh and centre Michael Jennings as they broke a five-match losing streak. The win was crafted from the Panthers’ superior completion rate (74 per cent to 69 per cent), and greater number of line-breaks (six to three) and metres gained (1338 to 1190).
