Penrith Panthers co-captain Nathan Cleary’s season has hit a roadblock as he faces a temporary setback due to a hamstring injury, the club revealed.

The standout halfback left the field during the closing moments of the Panthers’ recent triumph over Brisbane, sparking concerns about his fitness.

Cleary, known for his meticulous approach to injuries, is set to miss up to a month of action, which will test Penrith’s depth and resilience.

With Cleary sidelined, the Panthers will turn to Brad Schneider to fill the void in the crucial playmaking role, as they gear up to face a tough challenge against the Sydney Roosters.

In addition to Cleary, Penrith will also be without backrower Scott Sorensen, who is set to spend time on the sidelines recovering from a knee injury.

This injury blow presents an opportunity for the young talent Mavrik Geyer, son of Penrith legend Mark Geyer, to make his NRL debut.

Meanwhile, the Panthers are closely monitoring James Fisher-Harris’ shoulder injury, with uncertainties about his availability for the upcoming clashes.

On the Roosters’ side, prop Lindsay Collins and five-eighth Sandon Smith are also dealing with injuries, adding to the intrigue ahead of the Panthers clash.

The stage is set for an intense battle between the two powerhouse teams, with the absence of key players adding an extra layer of drama to the upcoming fixture.
