PanthersLogoSince their inception in 1967, the Penrith Panthers have struggled for long stretches of their history. The club went 18 years before making their first finals appearance, before success in the late 80’s cumlinated in the 1991 premiership. The Panthers claimed a second premiership in 2003, but have only made finals in consecutive seasons twice in their history.
