    Penrith beat Gold Coast to go past Warriors on NRL table

    The Titans didn't collar Penrith halfback James Maloney too often, on Sunday.


    A James Maloney masterclass paved the way for Penrith to charge past the Warriors on the NRL table.

    The Maloney-inspired Panthers beat the Gold Coast Titans 35-12 at Penrith on Sunday, to move to second in the standings.

    Unbeaten St George Illawarra, who meet the Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium on Friday, continue to lead the competition, following their 40-20 win over neighbours Cronulla. The Warriors are third, after losing 27-18 to the Brisbane Broncos on Saturday.

    Tyrone Peachey was a real handful for the Gold Coast defence.


    The Panthers now have the same 5-win, one-loss record as the Warriors. From 6-0 down against the Titans, Penrith produced a pretty dominant performance.

    In the continued absence of regular halfback Nathan Cleary, Maloney pulled the strings, setting up two crucial second-half tries as the Panthers won comfortably.

    It came at a cost, though, with wing Josh Mansour rushed to hospital with a suspected fractured cheekbone. Mansour copped an accidental knee to the face, while competing for a crosskick.

    He left the field, with blood streaming from his face, and was immediately taken to hospital.

    Minus Mansour, Maloney produced 128 running metres, came up with two linebreaks and another two linebreak assists, before topping off his day with a 72nd-minute field goal.

    The only disappointment was his failed conversion of Corey Harawira-Naera's first-half try. That ended a run, which began last season at Cronulla, of 39 successful conversion attempts.
