NRL: Sydney Roosters v Penrith Panthers

It's the east versus the west as these two premiership hopefuls meet in the Friday night showpiece match. 

Every point is crucial in the run to the finals and the jostling begins to try and secure a top four spot in September.

James Maloney returns to the Roosters home ground at Allianz Stadium where he plied his trade with great success, to lead a young and enthusiastic Panthers outfit.

The Roosters forwards led by Jared Waerea-Hargreaves will be out to gain an early ascendancy over the big Penrith pack that have terrorised their opposition this year.
