The Eels snatched back the lead with a penalty goal but it was all Penrith from then as they ran in three tries in 10 minutes to seal the win. Fox League commentator Andrew Voss said the Panthers had “cruised to victory” and called Cleary’s return from a five-game ban “an absolute masterclass. ”It wasn’t all good news for the Panthers though with Taylan May suffering a hamstring injury late in the game. It was a night to forget for the young winger, who was also sin-binned for a high shot in the first half.
