Moylan provides spark as Panthers prevail

A PIECE of brilliance from Panthers fullback Matt Moylan was the highlight of his team's 32-10 win over the Knights at Hunter Stadium yesterday.

Recent City representative Moylan showed great athleticism and persistence in the lead-up to the try that put the Panthers up 10-4 after 20 minutes.

Moylan produced an incredible bat-back from across the dead-ball line after Peter Wallace put a grubber into the in-goal. Moylan kept the ball alive and although Joey Leilua picked up the scraps, he offloaded the ball in-goal to no one and James McManus was unable to secure it as David Simmons forced it in for a try. Moylan was at the time credited with the try but the Penrith winger was later awarded the try.

The Knights equalised through a Dane Gagai try seven minutes later but that was the last bit of joy the hosts tasted for the afternoon.

The Panthers regained the lead through a try to Jamie Soward. The visitors went on with it in the second half with tries to Josh Mansour, Dean Whare and James Segeyaro.

The Panthers' win was soured by forward Nigel Plum requiring a medicab to take him off the field, after making heavy contact with Knights' Jarrod Mullen.
