Penrith Panthers

PanthersLogoAfter struggling for almost 20 years since their inception in 1967, the Penrith Panthers experienced major success during the early 90s with a Grand Final appearance in 1990 and then a maiden Premiership victory in 1991 against the Canberra Raiders. The Panthers then became one of the few clubs in rugby league history to follow up a wooden spoon year in 2002 with a Premiership the following season.

The 2016 season was a prosperous one for the Panthers. They finished the regular season in sixth position with a team largely consisting of locally developed juniors.
