NSW Cup Preview: Round 22
Penrith v Mounties: Top-Four Showdown

The top-of-the-table Mounties take on the fourth-placed Penrith Panthers in a scintillating clash between the VB NSW Cup’s best attack and the best defence.
With just two competition points separating the two sides, Mounties test their deadly attack against the Panthers’ league-best defence.
The last time the two teams met in Round Eight, the Panthers ended Mounties’ seven-game unbeaten run to start the season with a 16-10 win.
There’s no doubt Mounties want revenge for that loss and consolidate first place with three rounds before the finals. However, beating the Panthers will be a very tough assignment.
Despite holding the third-worst attack, the Panthers have been inspirational this season to sit in the top four. They have dealt with a number of weekly line up changes due to injuries as well as having to fulfill first-grade duties for their NRL side – who are in the middle of an injury crisis.
Don’t miss one of the games of the season.
