The match looks like a good one on paper for the Outlaws but need to be wary of a Panthers team who pushes the Bathurst Giants hard in last round’s clash.

It shapes up as a must-win game for the Outlaws who are engaged in a two-horses race with Dubbo Demons in the battle for the remaining top four position.

Club mates Bushrangers Rebels can help their cause with victory over the Demons this Saturday.

Outlaws were big winners over the Panthers last meeting, booting 19 goals to four, but will know Parkes are a different beast on home turf.
