Sunday27th June at Penrith Park
Penrith 14 – Tries: Applebee (1), G. Moran (1); Goals: Harvey (2), Ward (2) | Western Suburbs 8
A Grahame Moran try, which was converted by Bruce Ward after 13 minutes had Penrith lead 5-0.
Whilst Wests soon made it 5-3, a 32nd minute penalty conversion off the boot of Ward had the home team lead 7-3 at half time.
The visitors once again reduced the lead soon after the resumption to make it 7-6.
A penalty conversion from Gary Harvey made it 9-6 on the 50 minute mark, but Wests once again were next to score with a penalty conversion to make it 9-8.
Dave Applebee scored in the 72nd minute – he was put down by a Magpies defender close to the line, but the tackle was not deemed completed, and hence he regained his feet and ran about 25 metres to touch down over the line.
Whilst it remained unconverted, a second penalty conversion from Harvey made it 14-8 with four minutes remaining.
