ROOSTERS centre Michael Jennings continued his outstanding start to the season with two tries in his team's 30-6 win over Penrith at Allianz Stadium yesterday.
Jennings looms as a key figure for New South Wales in the upcoming Origin series - he has scored six tries this year.
Yesterday's scoreline didn't reflect the actual contest, with the Panthers only trailing 10-6, before Jennings got his first after 51 minutes.
He grabbed his second 12 minutes later off a James Maloney bomb, before Mitchell Pearce backed up a Jared Waerea-Hargreaves bust after 70 minutes to continue the second-half rout.
The Roosters will have the chance to confirm their credentials in the next three weeks with matches against Manly, the Cowboys and Storm.
