The patched up Panthers have scored a tough and impressive 29-18 win over Newcastle at McDonald Jones Stadium.
The Panthers scored the opening two tries and took an 18-6 lead into half-time.
The Knights never went away but a man of the match performance from James Maloney ensured the Panthers got home.
The win temporarily moves Penrith into second spot on the ladder.
