Returning to Panthers Stadium after running out of time against Cronulla last Sunday, Penrith will be intent on improving their application during the early stages of the match to ensure a late flurry of tries does more than make the final score line appear respectable.
While their performance in attack drew considerable criticism against the Roosters, the defensive intent and overall enthusiasm from the Bulldogs suggests that despite the side’s 14th placed standing being in direct contrast to their opponents, there are plenty of signs of promise throughout the club.
