Penrith followed up their win over defending premiers Manly with a spectacular triumph over Wests Tigers 42-22.
The Panthers kicked a penalty but a try to rookie Rhys Hanbury brought the visitors right back into the game.
Michael Jennings sped away for the home side¹s third try and with Gordon adding another penalty, the Panthers held a useful 22-12 lead at half-time.
A forward pass denied Dean Halatau a score after the break although tries to Robbie Farah and Taniela Tuaki for the Tigers levelled the scores until Gordon¹s successful penalty.
