Penrith says, “Go Panthers!”

Penrith Mayor Karen McKeown OAM has thrown the City’s support behind the Penrith Panthers this weekend as they look to secure their third NRL premiership title. 

“Penrith City Council and the Penrith community will be getting behind the Panthers and cheering them on in the Grand Final this Sunday,” Cr McKeown said. 

“Despite the Stay at Home orders in place preventing us from gathering at our favourite local venues or having the usual grand final BBQ with friends, I’m sure all Penrith residents will be at home watching the game with family.”

“The last three games have had us all on the edge of seats as we’ve cheered them on all the way and even though South Sydney got the better of us in week one of the finals, I’m feeling confident knowing we’ve got quite a good record against South Sydney.

“There are many similarities to the famed ’91 Grand Final victory with that team being denied the year prior, much like last year, before securing the title the next year.

“It would be a fairytale for the ages if the team can go one better this year. And what a way to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Panthers first grand final victory!” Cr McKeown added.

“Good luck Panthers, the community is right behind you.”
