NRL 2020 finals LIVE: Penrith Panthers v South Sydney Rabbitohs

The Panthers blow that one…

Api Koroisau is carving up Souths here and that should have been a try. Nathan Cleary just needed to find To'o on the vacant wing but his floating pass was way out in front a try goes begging. Souths on the back foot here but it's still 6-6.

The Panthers go close…

Souths hold on and now a terrible captain's challenge here from Josh Mansour. Just lost it on the play-the-ball and what a waste that was… insisted he needed to challenge that and you wonder if that will come back to haunt the Panthers later in the contest.

Penrith 6 Souths 6

Scores are level at ANZ Stadium after 10 minutes. Souths will be filthy they conceded so quickly after the early try and it was just a simple mistake. Still, that's the weapon that is the Cleary bomb. Never straight forward. Game on here.

TRY to the Panthers

That didn't take long…. the first set back and after scoring the try, Johnston drops the Cleary bomb cold in the contest and Brian To'o races over to score. Soft try and Souths cannot give those away with a grand final on the line. Penrith are on the board.

Souths 6 Penrith 0

Reynolds nails it from the sideline. Good start here from Souths and you would think they needed that against a team like the Panthers, who will hit back hard no doubt.

TRY for the Rabbitohs

What a start from South Sydney. A one-on-one steal on Dylan Edwards gives them the ball and Reynolds with the early kick to Alex Johnston on the wing. Right down his throat, that's his 23rd try of the year and off they go. Corey Allan with the initial steal. Superb football from Souths.

Reynolds misses the penalty…

A very rare miss there from Adam Reynolds. That was one he would normally make with his eyes shut. It wasn't a penalty anyway to the right result really.

Early penalty to the Rabbitohs…

James Tamou pinged for diving at the feet of Reynolds but it looks like he's slipped over, then Reynolds fell over him. Nothing in that at all but a golden chance to jag early points here for the Rabbits.

Teams are about to take the field…

You can feel the nervous energy from both clubs. Huge night of rugby league about to come up. The Panthers have won 16 straight, an incredible statistic. Can they march into the grand final and try for 18 and a premiership. We are almost ready to roll…

They really are everywhere…
