The Sydney Roosters and the Penrith Panthers finish off round three in the NRL when they tackle each other at Allianz Stadium.
Where: Allianz Stadium, Sydney
When: 8.00am GMT Monday 23th March (7.00pm local)

These heavyweights have both been good value so far this year, Penrith unbeaten and the Roosters with one win from two games. The Roosters were unlucky to lose to Souths in what already is being called the match of 2015.
Just how quickly Easts can recover from that absorbing and demaning 80-minute thriller will be crucial. Losing that game in that manner would have been a crushing blow mentally.
Trent Robinson’s men will want to dust themselves off quickly. And a Panthers team missing talisman Jamie Soward isn’t a bad prospect.
But underestimate the Mountain Men at your peril.
Soward is unavilable through injury so Isaac John has been given the nod. A lot of the playmaking duties will fall on Peter Wallace, Matt Moylan and James Segeyaro.
Moylan and Segeyaro in particular have been brilliant this year and will take some stopping.
You throw in the gigantic frame of Jamal Idris, the return of Josh Mansour and the enthuiasm of young guns Tyrone Peachey, Bryce Cartwright and Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, and Penrith has a great chance of beating their old rivals.
