The NRL 2022 Canberra Raiders vs Penrith Panthers match will be held on August 6, 6:00 PM (A.C.T) and 1:30 AM (Indian Time).
The match is Canberra Raiders vs Penrith Panthers. For the first time in four years, the Raiders will welcome the Penrith Panthers to the nation’s capital, reigniting a recent rivalry that has grown tenser. A series of incidents, including Panthers fans mocking the Green Machine’s famous Viking Clap on Penrith soil and the heated altercation after Raiders, prop Joe Tapine was caught in the middle of a Panthers try celebration, have increased tensions between the two sides since the Panthers’ last visit to GIO Stadium in 2018.
With a lot on the stake for both teams, the two sides are now prepared to pick up where they left off in one of the fiercest showdowns of the previous two seasons. According to Nine, a top Canberra staff member who wishes to remain nameless claimed that the club had been anticipating this match all season and was out to “ambush” the ‘arrogant’ Panthers team. But not just the home team is pumped up for the match against ladder-leading Penrith, which is without Nathan Cleary and Jarome Luai and has to recover from a loss to Parramatta. Hooker for the Panthers Api Koroisau declared that his team was more than prepared for the pressure.
