7:02 am on 21 August 2010

The Penrith Panthers have all but ended the South Sydney Rabbitohs' National Rugby League finals hopes with a 54-18 thrashing.

Brisbane's proud record of not missing the NRL finals since 1991 is also in real jeopardy.

The Broncos also lost heavily, by 44 to 18, to the Knights at Newcastle.
