Co-captain Nathan Friend looks at tomorrow's cash with the in-form Panthers and what the Aquis Titans have to do to leave Pepper Stadium with the points.

He goes into the clash with a new hooking partner in Nathan Peats after Friendy’s best performance of the season against Sydney Roosters.

He knows his side has to repeat the effort that saw the forwards nullify much of the work of the Roosters’ big-name pack on Monday.

"Penrith have been quite entertaining this year with their offloads and are a quality team that if we don't control their offloads from their big men it's going to be hard for our outside backs to contain their opponents and the halves.

"We still have plenty to work on, it was good to come away with a victory after five losses but we have to step up a gear tomorrow."
