Penrith 24 – Tries: Gordon (2), Iosefa (1), Jennings (1); Goals: Gordon (4) | Wests Tigers 10
The Wests Tigers scored the opening try, however, the Panthers struck back through a try to winger Michael Gordon, which he converted to make it 6-all after 25 minutes.
But the visitors posted the next try on the half hour mark to lead 10-6 at half time.
Penrith were first to score in the second half, with a second try to Gordon pegging it back to 10-all, with his conversion giving the hosts the lead for the first time.
Penrith further extended their lead when hooker Masada Iosefa dived over from dummy half at close range, which was followed up by a converted try to strike centre Michael Jennings, pushing the margin beyond two converted tries – which was a lead that the Panthers maintained until full time.
