The World of Rugby in the Sydney suburbs
The foundations of the Penrith Panthers go back to the early 20th century, where the club spent decades as a middle-rated team in the Western District Leagues. It wasn’t until the year 1967 that they were selected to join the NSWRFL premiership. Entering the top rugby league proved to be rather sketchy, with the team struggling to place in the front spots of the premiership. A lack of star players and insufficient homegrown young talents were the main reasons behind their struggle. But they never relented and focused on developing their own players to compete on an equal level with the top-tier teams. The first clear sign of success came in 1990, when they faced the Canberra Raiders in their first ever Grand Finale of the renamed National Rugby League, eventually losing out to the star-studded squad. But revenge came quickly, as only a year later, they faced the same team again in the Grand Finale, this time coming out victorious to clinch their first major title. The Penrith Panthers have since established themselves as strong contenders in the NRL, capable of beating any team on a given day. In 2003, they successfully added a second title to their laureates when they overcame the Sydney Roosters in the 2003 NRL Grand Finale. In the following years, the team oscillated between the middle and lower half of the league until a resurgence in 2018 saw them in fifth position on the NRL Ladder.
