Penrith remain unbeaten but they'll be itching to make a statement against the Warriors after blowing a commanding lead to draw with Newcastle last round.

The Panthers may well fit in some extra field goal practice during the week after the unlucky Matt Burton missed five attempts.

Meanwhile, the Warriors are coming off a terrific win over the struggling Dragons in which they completed an astounding 46 of 48 sets - including 44 straight sets - and didn't concede a point.

Key Match-Up

Isaah Yeo has been enormous for Penrith this season, pumping out huge numbers and minutes in the middle. The opposite No.13, Adam Blair, set the tone against the Dragons, and the Warriors will again look to the veteran for leadership here. Both men can have a big influence on their teams.
