A Nathan Cleary masterclass directed Penrith to a record tenth consecutive win as a rough Gold Coast crew were shown a thing or two in rugby association flawlessness.
The best was kept until toward the end in the current year’s Magic Round as the Panthers went crazy over the Titans in a 48 to 12 victory to finish off the last match of the end of the week at Suncorp Stadium.
Before in excess of 43,000 fans, the Penrith chief scored a cap stunt and set up three different attempts to solidify themselves as quite possibly the most prevailing sides in the NRL time.
The Titans were without their have a go at scoring machine David Fifita – sidelined for about fourteen days through suspension – yet discovered it almost difficult to break the Penrith protection.
Notwithstanding a late flood in the last 15 minutes of the match, with attempts to Beau Fermor and AJ Brimson, the Titans were gazing intently at the barrel of a dampening scoreless loss.
They weren’t helped by a cerebrum snap by Titans forward Herman Ese’ese who neglected to peruse the temperament of the most recent three days, with an incredibly crazy thoughtless high tackle which cost the Gold Coast an opportunity at overcoming the stepping stool pioneers.
