James Tedesco sent another strong message to NSW selectors, Josh Mansour's freakish putdown, McKendry's season might be over and defence wins it for Tigers.
James Tedesco set up two tries as the Wests Tigers got the better of Matt Moylan's Penrith Panthers 34-26 at ANZ Stadium on Saturday.
The Wests Tigers and Penrith Panthers have finalised their line-ups for Saturday night's clash at ANZ Stadium.
There is one thing on the minds of Wests Tigers players heading into this weekend's battle of western Sydney: stop the offloads.
They spend more time together as a team than they do with their families so what are the annoying habits of teammates that get on the nerves of our NRL stars?
The Penrith Panthers have released playmaker Jamie Soward from the remainder of his contract with the club.
The western Sydney derby features two sides capable of playing some of the most attractive football in the Telstra Premiership.
Penrith look likely to secure a top eight berth if they can win five of their remaining 10 NRL matches this season, and that starts with the Tigers in Round 17.
While his attacking flair is there for all to see, it's Nathan Cleary's work in defence that has impressed his Panthers teammates the most.
He may be the talk of the town but Panthers star Bryce Cartwright says it isn't up to the fans whether he makes his debut in two weeks' time.
