The Panthers needed to only beat the Cowboys to be minor premiers, but they look set to destroy them.
This has so far been a statement performance for the two-time reigning premiers.
In only his second appearance at first grade level, Luke Sommerton has his first try at NRL level, and his Penrith teammates have got right around him.
Cleary’s kick is good, and they lead 26-blot at half time.
Considering the Cowboys needed an unlikely win to play finals, they’ve shown little resistance.
Still 40 minutes to go though.
