The Warriors' season was left on a precipice after they were smashed 62-6 by the Panthers at Centrebet Stadium in Round 10.
The Panthers scored 10 tries to one, with the Warriors' only try coming with two minutes to go, via winger Manu Vatuvei.
The Panthers didn't begin their scoring spree until the 15th minute, when Isaac John crossed, but they scored at regular intervals after that. The 10 tries were spread among seven players, with three going to John, two to Lewis Brown, and Travis Robinson, James Segeyaro, Matt Robinson, Kevin Kingston and David Simmons all getting singles.
Halfback Luke Walsh converted each of the 10 tries and added a penalty goal.
The Panthers dominated the Warriors up front, with starting props Tim Grant and Nigel Plum running for 162 and 146 metres respectively and bench prop Mose Masoe racking up 154 as well.
The loss left the Warriors with a win-loss record of 2-8 for the first 10 rounds, and captain Simon Mannering admitted "it doesn't get much worse" than a loss of such magnitude.
