WESTS Panthers reaffirmed their premiership potential when they overturned a 14-point deficit to beat Wallaroos.

Wallaroos capitalised on a strong start in front of their home fans, and after tries to Jack Horder, Ethan West and Paul Shillingsworth looked to have the 19th round clash under control.

The Panthers have always been a major threat come September, and they proved it again as they wrestled the fixture away from the home side.

The win provides the Panthers an opportunity to move up the table in the final two weeks of the regular season.
