Penrith Panthers Rugby League Football Club
The Penrith Panthers are based in Penrith, New South Wales. Based 55 km west of the centre of Sydney and at the foot of the Blue Mountains, the Panthers were admitted to the New South Wales Rugby League (NSWRL) competition in 1967, predecessor of the Australian Rugby League (ARL) and the current NRL competition.
Penrith struggled for almost twenty years before finally reaching their first finals series in 1985. The club achieved its first Grand Final appearance in 1990 but were beaten by the Canberra Raiders 18–14. The following year the Panthers met the Raiders again in the 1991 Grand Final, this time winning the game 19–12. Penrith’s most recent premiership achievement was over the Sydney Roosters in the 2003 Grand Final where Penrith were considered ‘under dogs’ but came out on top with a 18–6 victory.
