Purple wall ready for Panthers
A dangerous attack and an improved defence has Craig Bellamy cautious of the Penrith side that will be coming to town on Saturday night.
The Panthers rank number two for points scored for and also against, giving them the best differential in the NRL after four rounds.
Their multi faceted game was on full displayed in last week’s 40-nil win over the Bulldogs, leaving the Storm coach full aware of what his side will be up against at AAMI Park.
“I think the way they play their footy, while they have improved their defence, there is a lot of emphasis on their attack with how they do it,” Bellamy said.
“They are really dangerous with the footy, it is something that we are aware of and we’ll have to work really hard to restrict them to as few points as possible.
“It is always a defensive battle. You always want to restrict them to as least points as possible, that is everyone’s mindset.”
Suliasi Vunivalu and Jordan McLean will have to make it through Friday’s captain’s run in order to prove their fitness.
Storm will take on the Panthers at 7.30pm on Saturday night at AAMI Park.
