Bateman: Penrith have been the benchmark side so far

Raiders second-rower John Bateman believes that this weekend's opposition the Penrith Panthers have been the benchmark side of the NRL so far. The England international has revealed that he had originally pencilled in this week's clash to return from a shoulder injury and is relishing his chance to improve on his combinations with George Williams and Curtis Scott.
