Storm, Panthers to host scratch match

Penrith and Melbourne will become the first two clubs to organise a match specifically for their fringe players — some of whom haven't played for almost three months.

Via Herald Sun.

The first interclub hitout of its kind will kick-off at the Panthers Academy at 4pm on Friday — only a few hours before Ivan Cleary and Craig Bellamy's NRL sides meet at 7.55pm at Campbelltown Sports Stadium.

The seven-a-side game will feature those players from Penrith and Melbourne outside their 21-man roster and who have been unable to play any footy as a result of the cancellation of the NSW Canterbury Cup and Queensland Intrust Super Premiership.
