How to watch Penrith Panthers vs North Queensland Cowboys NRL live and match preview

Posted: 27 May 2022 12:00 pm

An unexpected blockbuster has emerged with Penrith hosting the resurgent Cowboys in a massive Round 12 clash.

SUMMARY: The Panthers vs Cowboys clash is exclusive to Fox Sports. Unless you're already an existing Foxtel iQ customer with the Sports HD pack, your best option is to watch live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

Penrith have lost just once this season as their title defence progresses strongly heading into this Panthers vs Cowboys match. They clearly hold the mantle of premiership favourites, and victories over the Storm and Roosters in the last fortnight confirm that.

The Cowboys have jumped from the bottom 2 last season into third place with 7 straight victories, including a pummelling of Melbourne Storm last week.

When is the Cowboys vs Panthers clash?

In this Indigenous Round, the clash gets underway at 6pm AEST on Friday 27 May at BlueBet Stadium in Penrith, home of the Dharug people.

Panthers vs Cowboys match preview

The Panthers are putting together an incredible body of work lately. League leaders in 2020 before losing a Grand Final, Premiers in 2021 and 2 games clear on top of the table 11 rounds into 2022.

They are 54-7-1 since the start of 2020 and have won a remarkable 45 matches in a row when leading at half-time.

Penrith Panthers vs North Queensland Cowboys

The Cowboys keep passing every test put in front of them, but those tests keep getting tougher, especially vs the Panthers. Last week they smashed the Storm at home but will need to find another level away in Penrith against a powerful, confident and in-form team.

We think they'll handle the occasion well, but the Panthers will sneak home in a tight affair.
