Highlights: Panthers V Roos
The Penrith Panthers have won the 2017 Intrust Super Premiership NSW Grand Final after holding off a gutsy Wyong Roos outfit 20-12 at Leichhardt Oval and will take on the Queensland champions - the PNG Hunters on NRL Grand Final day.
The Panthers dominated the early exchanges as they threatened the Roos’ goal line with some threatening attacking raids, but were unable to draw first blood as the Roos’ defence held strong.
Despite some last-ditch efforts from the Roos to salvage a potential comeback, the Panthers were able to hold strong and eventually come away with a valiant 20-12 victory.
The NRL 'Intrust Super' Championship will see both state premiers do battle ahead of the Melbourne Storm V North QLD Cowboys at ANZ Stadium on Sunday, October the 1st.
