There it is.

A poor kick from Luke Brooks gave Penrith a nice roll on and finally they give the ball to Cartwright, exploit Brooks on the fringe and score a nice try to seal the result.

They did it the tough way Penrith, but they were just too strong across the park for Wests.
Yep. Tigers couldn't hang on.

I'm ok with the no tries for obstruction. If an attacking player wants to stand around in the defensive line instead of getting out of it what do they think is going to happen?

That pass from Wallace seems like a fitting note to end the game on.

In the end, the scoreline ended up how it should have been, but it was typical Penrith/Hook. Do everything but score, invite the opposition back into the game and hope to god they grant you some opportunities at the death to redeem your performance. It'll be enough to get them into 8th but gee Penrith have to step it up next year if they want to be considered a genuine force.

Wests' had their moments but they were either outclassed or let themselves down with poor errors. On the brightside, the likes of Lolohea, Marsters, Twal and Eisenhuth are showing promising signs. If they can groom these players and surround them with a marquee signing there's no reason why they can't mix it with the top teams in 2019.

The dive from Eisenhuth was unnecessary, all he had to do was push Wallace and that would have been enough. The dive just colours everybody's perception of the incident. Wallace can't loiter in the defensive line, end of story.
