Penrith continued its irresistible march with a 74-10 defeat of the Vodafone Junior Warriors in Saturday’s 10th-round NYC clash at Pepper Stadium.

The Panthers have been all but unstoppable so far this season, losing just one of their first 10 starts of the campaign.

Two weeks ago they beat Canberra 74-10 and knocked up an identical score-line in overpowering the Vodafone Junior Warriors, scoring 13 tries in total with Nathan Cleary scoring a try and kicking 11 goals for 26 points.

The Vodafone Junior Warriors yielded two tries in the first six minutes to fall 0-12 behind but then they found some joy with tries to Erin Clark and Mose Esera to be just 10-12 down after 17 minutes.

Unfortunately, the day turned grim from then on as Penrith hit top gear with centre Braiden Burns scoring five tries.
