Re-live the hat-trick Luke Patten scored against the Penrith Panthers in 2004.

The game opened at a frantic pace with Bulldogs forward Willie Mason and his Penrith counterpart Martin Lang swapping punches in the fifth minute.

Mason was penalised but he had the last laugh three minutes later, slipping a pass out the back in a three-man tackle which created a try for fullback Luke Patten.

Two more for Patten and he had his hat-trick in the first 28 minutes of the opening half.

IT'S a battle for the title of Best in the West when rivals the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Penrith Panthers unleash at ANZ Stadium.
