WINS | [2012] Round 20: Penrith 28 Sydney Roosters 18

Sunday 22nd July at Centrebet Stadium

Penrith 28: Tries: Tighe (2), Jennings (1), Robinson (1), Simmons (1); Goals: Walsh (4) | Sydney Roosters 18


A converted Brad Tighe try after 13 minutes saw Penrith lead 6-0 and in the shadows of half time a converted Roosters try locked it up, however a try to Matthew Robinson had the home team hold a 10-4 lead at half time.

Two tries inside the first 15 minutes of the second half, firstly to winger David Simmons and then a scintillating 50 metre effort from centre Michael Jennings saw the Panthers lead 22-6.

Whilst the visitors reduced the margin soon after it was countered by a second try to Brad Tighe.

The visitors refused to lie down and once again countered with a try to reduce it to 28-16. It would however be the last of the scoring with the Panthers registering a morale boosting victory and snapping a five match losing streak. However it would be somewhat soured with five-eighth Travis Burns sent off in the shadows of full time from a head high tackle.
