A brief history of the NRL

The National Rugby League, or NRL, is the top-level professional rugby league competition in Australia. It was founded in 1998 as a joint venture between the Australian Rugby League (ARL) and News Limited. The NRL is contested by sixteen teams, fifteen of which are based in Australia and one based in New Zealand.

The NRL has its roots in the rugby football code that was originally established in New South Wales in 1908. This code split from the rugby union code in 1895 over disagreements regarding player compensation, and quickly became popular throughout Australia and New Zealand. In 1907, a professional competition was formed, known as the New South Wales Rugby Football League (NSWRFL). The NSWRFL eventually expanded to include teams from Queensland and New Zealand, and became the premier rugby league competition in Australasia.

In 1994, following years of financial struggle, the ARL proposed merging with the NSWRFL to form a new entity, which would be owned equally by both organisations. However, this proposal was rejected by the NSWRFL clubs, who instead formed their own competition, Super League.

This led to a period of great upheaval and uncertainty in the game, with two separate competitions being played out during the 1997 and 1998 seasons. Finally, after much negotiation and legal wrangling, an agreement was reached between the ARL and Super League to form the NRL as we know it today.

Since its inception, the NRL has been one of Australia’s most popular sporting competitions.

The rise of the Penrith Panthers

In the early 1990s, the Penrith Panthers were one of the most dominant teams in the NRL, winning three premierships in four years. However, they then fell into a period of decline, culminating in their wooden spoon in 2002.

2003 was a turning point for the club, with the arrival of coach John Lang and captain Craig Gower. The Panthers slowly started to rebuild their team and by 2006 they were back in the finals. In 2010, they made it all the way to the Grand Final, only to be beaten by the Dragons.

The following year, 2011, was even better for the Panthers. They won the minor premiership and then went on to defeat the Warriors in the Grand Final. It was their first premiership since 2003 and ended a 19-year wait for Panthers fans.

Since then, the Panthers have been one of the most consistent teams in the NRL, making the finals every year except 2016. In 2019, they finished second onthe ladder and lost to eventual premiers Canberra Raiders in a close preliminary final.

Looking to 2020, there is no reason why the Panthers can’t go one step further and win their second premiership in nine years!
