Not so long ago the toughest challenge about travelling to Penrith was handling the cold weather. Not so in 2014.
The Panthers notched up their fifth win a row - and sixth win at Sportingbet Stadium in 2014 – with a hard fought 18-14 win against St George Illawarra.
The Panthers have now equalled the total number of wins they had at home all of last year and are on track to break their 2010 figure of nine wins – which was also the last time the Panthers made the playoffs.
