Panthers vs Rabbitohs: live stream the NRL 2020 preliminary final

It's do-or-die for the Panthers and the Rabbitohs tonight

We’re in for a thrilling game of footy tonight, with the Panthers clashing with the Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium. This is a match you won’t want to miss, and it kicks off tonight (October 17) at 7:50pm AEDT.

Penrith has had a near-perfect run this season, only losing one game this year back in round 5 to the Parramatta Eels. That means they’re currently on a 16-game winning streak.

Panthers vs Rabbitohs: live stream and time

It’s game day! Tonight’s Panthers vs Rabbitohs clash takes place at ANZ Stadium in Sydney, Australia, and the match is set to kick off at 7.50pm AEDT. Australians can watch Panthers vs Rabbitohs live and on Kayo Sports, or on Foxtel’s Fox Footy. A free-to-air broadcast will show on Channel Nine.

If the Panthers can keep their momentum and win the Grand Final, they’d also be claiming the title of the biggest winning streak in the NRL’s history.

That’s surely a lot of pressure on Penrith, and makes tonight’s sudden-death match all the more important for Ivan Cleary’s team.

To keep their dreams alive, they’ll need to get past a stellar South Sydney team, who’ve put a total of 144 points on the board in their past three games. 

It looks set to be a high-scoring match, and you can catch the action at 7:50pm AEDT on October 17.

We’re just one round away from the Grand Final, with every team in their best form – we can’t wait to see what week three brings us.

All this action can be watched live on free-to-air, pay TV and streaming service platforms, with the Panthers vs Rabbitohs game tonight (October 17) at 7:50pm AEDT from ANZ Stadium.
