Morris with the cold drop, wasn't likely to score, but only early in the set with Sydney looking poised to extend their lead.

Now Radley gives away a dumb penalty for a late hit on Maloney. Penrith with an opportunity to equalise.

Panthers back in trouble working hard to make metre. Roosters looking good till Mitchell dropped it.

Despite sustained pressure, Cleary surrenders the ball over cheaply and Sydney are deep inside the Panthers half. Keary drives it down towards the in-goal as Mitchell swoops on Edwards, forcing Penrith to work it out deep inside their own half.

The Panthers lack of variety is costing them here. It's either going to the left or they're relying too heavily on the kicking game to bail themselves out. It's produced some good results, but it isn't capable of producing miracles.

Whare searching in field can't find anyone so he dumps it back to Fisher-Harris who is a good 5m behind the play. It sums it up Penrith for the moment.

What a pass there from Kikau. S. Crichton with not a lot of room decides to put the kick through and forces another goal line drop out.

Tetevano plays for the penalty and gets rewarded. Lazy from Campbell-Gillard but a bad look all the same.

Penrith denied on the eve of half-time as Sydney take two shots at field goal, only to have both smothered.

Only six points in it, a fairly even contest. Penrith have controlled things better, but Sydney look far more likely with the football.

The Roosters support play and passing game is a joy to watch, real football. Makes our bash and barge attack look prehistoric. We will never trouble the top 4 sides as we won't be able to score points

Great work Sydney, first the difficult take by Manu followed by an electric 30m run from Morris which draws the penalty.

Sydney go through back on the inside, Butcher surges towards the line, but the ball slips out of his grasp and Penrith hang on.

There it is, Latrell runs onto the pass takes advantage of Burns' inexperience to extend the Roosters lead. That try has felt inevitable all evening.

A couple of injury concerns here. Both Taukeiaho and Morris appear to be struggling, Kikau is off the field as well.

Mitchell's conversion goes wide, that's a nervous lead.

I still feel like Roosters are going to explode in the finals, all over Cam's face again.

There's the penalty goal to take the edge off that nervous 10 point lead.

It would have been interesting if Perenara had have played advantage. Angus came up with a fantastic play the ball and Penrith looked sparse around the ruck.

Kikau back on from his HIA.

Penrith didn't look like getting out of their own half until that horrid kick. Now Keary with a bad penalty taking out the bloke without the football and Penrith have a golden opportunity to get into this game.
