Wide-World-of-Sports-March-11NINE’S SUNDAY RUGBY LEAGUE


Sydney Roosters v Penrith Panthers
Allianz Stadium, Sydney

This weekend Nine’s Rugby League sees the Sydney Roosters take on the Penrith Panthers at Allianz Stadium in Sydney this Sunday, March 11 at 1pm.

The Roosters will still be pumped after miraculously snatching victory from the jaws of defeat last Monday with their 24-20 win over the Rabbitohs. With just under three minutes remaining, and trailing 20-12, the Roosters somehow summoned back-to-back tries to secure a win over their arch rivals.

Meanwhile, the Panthers are battling with the disappointing news of losing speedster Michael Gordon after the winger fractured his leg in their narrow loss to Canterbury on Saturday. Penrith will be looking to atone for their opening round defeat and will hope to stifle the Roosters momentum come Sunday afternoon.

The Roosters hold a narrow edge of the Panthers, having won five of their past eight clashes, including the last two.
