World news – « Hard to play, silky footy »: Panthers battle through pouring rain to set a 102-year record


There may have been large puddles of water on the surface, 100 millimeters of rain in less than 24 hours and only 5062 spectators in the 30,000-seat Bankwest Stadium, but nothing could rain on Penrith’s parade on Saturday afternoon.

As Sydneysiders dated Bureau of Meteorology warned to stay home, the Panthers set off to a 28-0 win over the Bulldogs and became the first team since 1919 to play three straight season games without a point to cash in.

Dallin Watene-Zelezniak was sentenced to sin for a negligent duel with Nathan Cleary and the captain of the Panthers missed the final 10 minutes. After an earlier argument between the young halves Jarome Luai and Kyle Flanagan, a second fight broke out between the two sides.

During the Bulldogsâ ???? The defense was put to the test, as was the Bankwest Stadium drainage system, as heavy rain fell during the game, creating a large puddle in the southwestern part of the ground.

« It’s a bit of fun, » Cleary said at halftime . It’s obviously quite wet, hard to play a silky footy. But it’s like you’re a kid sliding around again.

Bankwest staff were also forced to deal with the soccer markings left by the A-League game on Friday night. Since the ground crew did not want to put water on the surface, they could not completely wash the pipes. The many lines caused confusion among the fans who were watching at home, as well as the Panthers ???? second try.

Tyrone May landed the ball about ten feet above the trial line, but when the soccer ball was five yards from the trial line it looked like it fell short. The league lines were also washed away so quickly that they had to be reapplied at halftime.

Luai was the panther ???? best, and he found Viliame Kikau for the first try of the day. Thanks to the support, Kikau found a hole on the left edge that he could walk over after five minutes.

Luai also used a perfect cultivator for Mai to win the second attempt of the day and give the Panthers a practical lead .

Bulldog fans would have been happy to see Kikau’s back when he was lifted after his first attempt for an HIA, but he returned after the break.

And after a few early mistakes, Mitch recovered Kenny and found Kikau for the third attempt of the day.

Paul Momirovski overturned twice in the last 10 minutes to put the cherry on a very moist cake for the Panthers ???? second win of the season.

Canterbury’s performance wasn’t the result Trent Barrett would have wanted against his former team. But the Bulldogs managed to win: the best without a try of the season.

The Bulldogs were rejected after being sacked by the referee on the field after a chip from Nick Cotric found Corey Allan on the right edge.

Raymond Faitala-Mariner was removed from the game at halftime due to a foot complaint. Scans confirmed how long he would be out of the game.

The Panthers were without Api Koroisau, who underwent surgery on Friday for a broken wrist. It is expected to be on the road for four to six weeks.
