Penrith Panthers

PanthersLogoAfter struggling for almost twenty years since their inception in 1967, the Penrith Panthers experienced major success during the early 90’s 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.

In 2014 the Panthers had a stellar regular season, finishing fourth. The side went straight to the third week of the finals after defeating the Roosters 19-18 in the first week. They then went down to the Bulldogs in the qualifying final.
