Penrith Panthers

Penrith Panthers are a team in the National Rugby League competition that first entered the premiership in 1967.

The club went through lean times until 1985 where they scored an infamous victory over Manly Sea Eagles in a play-off to make their first finals series.

In 1990 Penrith would win their way to the Grand Final but fell short against Canberra 18-14 at the Sydney Football Stadium.

Both teams met in the 1991 Grand Final where former club captain Phil Gould coached the Greg Alexander led side to a 19-12 victory over the Raiders landing the club’s maiden premiership.

The club joined Super League in 1997 and returned to the NRL a year later.

Penrith’s second premiership came in 2003 when they beat cross-city rivals Sydney Roosters 18-6 at Stadium Australia.  John Lang was the coach with Craig Gower skippering the side.

Legends of the club include Bob Landers, Graheme Moran, Royce Simmons, Greg Alexander, John Cartwright, Mark Geyer, Craig Gower, Ryan Girdler, Rhys Wesser and Brad Fittler.

Some of their celebrity fans include Kurt Fearnley, Mick Fanning, James Courtney and Pat Cummins.
