Friday 13th May at Centrebet Stadium
Penrith 33 – Tries: Tighe (2), Gordon (1), Kingston (1), Lewis (1), Tahu (1); Goals: Walsh (4); Field goals: Walsh (1) | Brisbane 10
Luke Walsh opened the scoring when he ran at the Broncos defensive line and placed enough downward pressure on the ball over the try line, with Michael Gordon adding the extras to make it 6-0.
In the 26th minute the Panthers doubled their lead when Kevin Kingston ran out of dummy half and burrowed over adjacent to the uprights, to lead 12-0.
The Broncos would score the next two tries, including one after the half time siren to reduce the Panthers lead to just 2.
Eight minutes after the resumption, a Luke Walsh line break 40 metres from their line finished with a Michael Gordon try who was running in support to his left after Walsh drew in the Broncos fullback.
Only minutes later, Gordon turned to provider when he took a kick from 10 metres out and whilst he jogged to the defensive line, soon busted his way through and found Brad Tighe to his right on the halfway line, who still had a bit of work to do but out ran the defenders.
Up 24-10, the Panthers pressed further ahead when Gordon once again turned up a try assist, passing it back inside for Timana Tahu who barged over.
However only minutes later Gordon would be assisted off the field with a suspected knee injury.
Despite the setback, the home team roared further ahead with a second try to Brad Tighe soon after in the corner, and Walsh having the final say with a short range field goal from right in front with only seconds to go.
