The Panthers aren’t under-estimating the Wests Tigers heading into Sunday’s game at Penrith Stadium.
Forward Mose Masoe has warned that the Tigers pose a massive threat to Penrith’s recent winning streak, which currently sits at three matches.
“The Tigers will be the most dangerous side we have played in the last four weeks,” he declared.
“They’ve got good strikepower in their team across the board.”
Masoe declared the first 20 minutes would be crucial this Sunday.
“We’ve just got to go in with the same mindset as every other game,” he said.
A crowd of 15,000 is expected for the Sunday afternoon battle between the two western Sydney clubs.
The Tigers beat the Panthers earlier this season at Campbelltown Stadium, but have only won three matches this season and have the worst defensive record in the NRL.
In other news, Penrith have re-signed in-form winger David Simmons for another two seasons.
