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.

In 2015 the Panthers struggled, finishing 11th and missing the finals.
