Coach Ben Woolf has stuck with the same squad that had a convincing win against Parramatta for this Saturday’s clash with Penrith at Cbus Super Stadium.

Anthony Colman (knee) and Zac Spring  who missed the win against the Eels, will also be absent for the Panthers clash with Tevita Folau and Shane Gilham retaining their spots.

Woolf has picked a six-man bench and will make final selection decisions on the day of the match.

“It was a tremendous performance against the Eels, especially in the second half and I thought it was important to show faith in the side that did the job,” Woolf said.

“We have good competition for positions now and better depth than last year so it’s encouraging.

“Penrith are just above us on the ladder and will be motivated by us coming from behind to beat them in Bathurst, so it’s an important game for us.”
