Penrith posts big 2nd-half comeback in National Rugby League

13 May 2017

For the Warriors, it was their biggest collapse, eclipsing the 18-point lead they gave up against Manly in 2012.

Isaah Yeo scored a brace of tries to get the Panthers back in the game against the Warriors.

Kieran Foran and Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad both had great first halves against the Panthers.

"The Panthers turned up the intensity in the second half and we just couldn't match it which was the disappointing part", Kearney said.

When Blake was off the field the Warriors added two tries; Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad finished off a sweeping backline play, then Ryan Hoffman split the defence with a trademark left edge run.

Routine appointments had been cancelled and ambulances were being diverted to neighbouring hospitals. FedEx said it was experiencing issues with some of its Windows systems in relation to the attack.

Two gutted Warriors fans have tonight posted video on social media featuring them dousing two replica Warriors jerseys with a flammable liquid and then setting them alight.

The Warriors enjoyed a 28-6 lead at halftime with thousands of fans on social media talking up their team's hopes of winning their first match away in Australia for the 2017 season.

To top off a half where everything had gone their way, Fusitu'a grabbed an intercept to run 85 metres to score, shaking off another determined chase from Blake.

The away side took the foot off the gas for a little while, and the Panthers were able to strike through Isaah Yeo just before the half-hour mark, but the 16-6 margin wouldn't hold for long, Foran nailing a 40/20 for the visitors and Nicoll-Klokstad bagging his second after 33 minutes. It came after Watene-Zelezniak made a break off a Warriors' bomb, though the last pass to Peachey looked marginal. Game over? It should have been.

The Warriors had to do lots of work on defence after that and they couldn't keep out Kiwis winger Dallin Watene-Zelezniak in the 53rd minute, who caught a crossfield kick from Bryce Cartwright.

Washington went up 3-1, then saw its best season ever come undone at the hand of unheralded Montreal goaltender Jaroslav Halak. This fictional conversation illustrates the pain or pleasure that awaits Capitals fans at the Verizon Center Wednesday night.

Isaah Yeo was the unlikely Penrith hero, scoring either side of halfltime before putting Waqa Blake through a hole, with the Panthers centre running over the top of Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to make it 28-24 after 56 minutes.

Nathan Cleary's conversion put the Panthers in front 30-28 and although the onslaught subsided after that, the Warriors were unable muster much on attack. For the Warriors, this was the sort of game they are involved in all too often. "It was bad. We should have went on with that game (being up 28-6 at halftime) but we let them back into it - very disappointing.just silly errors and we gave them that game", said Warriors prop Jacob Lillyman.

"It didn't feel like we applied enough pressure, we didn't get down there and get enough good ball". Warriors 28 (Kieran Foran, 2 Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad, Ryan Hoffman, David Fusitu'a tries; 4 Shaun Johnson goals).

It was scarcely believable, as the Panthers were seemingly scoring at will, and had taken the lead with more than 20 minutes seem to play, with captain Matt Moylan crossed for their fourth try of the half.
