Match Preview
Both these teams have a chance to get in the top 4, but both have a lot to prove leading especially given their losses last week

Key Matchup
By their own high standards, halfbacks Shaun Johnson and Nathan Cleary didn't stand up for their teams last week. Both will be looking to take control of this match. With Green out this week Mason Lino will have a tough time against Tyrone Peachey.

Jeremy's Prediction
Given both teams poor form last week, they will both be looking to bounce back. The Warriors are missing Green who has been steadying the ship this season. The Panthers will be looking to make a big comeback and if the Warriors play like they did against the Bulldogs then the Panthers will come over the top. Panthers win in a close one
