Congratulations to the Penrith Panthers!

What an amazing achievement it has been for the Panthers and our City. Our Mighty Panthers won the ‘Battle of the West’ to claim the 2022 NRL grand final title - winning back-to back premierships!  

What’s more – our Panthers have achieved what NO other team has in the 113-year history of the National Rugby League. No team has ever won all four grades in one season but our beloved Panthers have – and they’ve rewritten history.  

They took out the SG Ball, secured the Jersey Flegg, claimed the NSW Cup, and on Sunday, beat Queensland’s Norths Devils to win the State Cup and then capped it off by beating the Eels to claim the first-grade premiership title.  

This extraordinary achievement is a credit to the fearless determination, tremendous talent and incredible hard work of all players and teams. The players are an inspiration to so many people in our City and the values for which this club is built on - which is very much a family club. It also reflects the outstanding leadership, support and excellent junior development initiatives of the Club.  

It also comes down to something else – something truly special – and that is of course the unwavering support of our die-hard Penrith fans across our community.  They love their Penrith Panthers with a passion and have been behind them every step of the way, all year and every year before - and this is their moment too!  

It’s been a tough year for many in our community with the impact of COVID-19, cost of living and major floods – and the Panthers have generated so much inspiration, hope and excitement across our City. And the community has shown its appreciation and support in return - especially in the past few weeks.   

On behalf of Penrith City Council and the Penrith Community, including all the fans – a mighty congratulations to the Panthers players, coaches, staff and Club on what has been a remarkable year of rugby league.  

The Mighty Penrith Panthers – the 2022 NRL Premiers!

Get Prepared

As the recent flood events in Penrith reminded us, there’s more to a flood than just the water. People who experience floods often have to contend with scared children and animals. An emergency plan can help, but if you don’t know where to start, you’re not alone. The FREE Get Prepared app includes tips on how to stay calm, find important information, save key contacts and helps to pin-point what you could do and where you could go in a flood event. With disasters becoming more frequent, it has never been more important to get prepared.

Get the app yourself, and tell your family, friends and neighbours to download it at
