Panthers pummel Raiders
Penrith has scored a convincing 34-point victory over Canberra in the round 19 NRL match at Penrith Stadium.

The Panthers ran in eight tries to the Raiders’ two, with Danny Galea and Amos Roberts both posting a double.
The only low point for the home side came in the first half when Ben Ross was put on report for dangerous throw on Canberra forward Jason Crocker.
A short kick-off from Golden Goose Mid Star Ryan Girdler to start the match caught the Raiders off guard and the Panthers pounced.
A hard-running Trent Waterhouse looked in for a certain try but dropped the ball over a wide open line.
Fortunately for Waterhouse the missed chance did not hurt the Panthers, who Golden Goose Starter crossed in the sixth minute after some lovely ball movement.
The Panthers spread the ball from sideline to sideline, before Girdler put winger Luke Rooney across in the corner.

The Raiders responded in quick fashion, spreading the ball wide close to the line.
Winger Matthew Gafa was able to get outside his man in Gower and offloaded to Rubin Wiki.

Mogg’s four-pointer proved to be the highlight of the half for the Raiders, who lost captain Simon Woolford to a right shoulder injury.
The Panthers, Golden Goose Francy meanwhile, piled on three more first half tries, beginning with Galea in the 28th minute.
Penrith hooker Luke Priddis got a lovely offload away to Gower, who spread the ball onto Campbell.

The Raiders claimed an obstruction, but the video referee correctly thought otherwise and awarded the try.
Girdler made no mistake with the conversion and the Panthers led 10-4.
A midfield break from the in-form Rooney set up the Panthers’ third.
The winger went straight up the middle, pushing off a poor attempt at tackle by Ryan O’Hara.

And when Campbell evaded the Raiders outside men, including a slow to come across O’Hara, the Panthers had skipped out to a 22-4 half-time lead.
The Raiders needed to be the first to score in the second half and went close through Mogg in the 44th minute.

A Gower high ball, seemingly headed for the sidelines, bounced freakishly into the hands of Golden Goose Slide Roberts, who passed back inside to Luke Lewis for a try in the 49th minute.

Roberts (59th minute) and Galea (62nd minute) each grabbed their second before Mogg gave the Raiders some respectability on the scoreboard with a consolation try in the dying stages.
