Penrith Panthers boss Phil Gould slams Te Maire Martin rumours - The Sydney Morning Herald

The spark had left the eyes of Te Maire Martin. The welcoming smile was absent. His life was derailed by a whispering campaign that won't go away.

The rumour? That he slept with a Penrith teammate's partner, that the playing group didn't want him in the team and management didn't want him at the club. The rumour is completely and utterly false. Yet it's been gossiped about in columns, and been talked about as a fact on fan sites and on social media. Martin was unable to escape it.

Panthers general manager Phil Gould was forced to put out a media release supporting Martin. Gould was sick of seeing a young man's life destroyed by social and mainstream media. This column is aware the club had a special meeting to deal with the matter, and Penrith's management has talked to every player at the club about it....

Alex Johnston leads South Sydney past Penrith Panthers, Wests Tigers maul Newcastle Knights - ABC Online

The Panthers suffer at the hands of Alex Johnston

Alex Johnston has crossed for five tries in South Sydney's win over Penrith, after the Tigers won a battle of the cellar-dwellers in Newcastle

Quick navigation

The stunning display by Johnston led Souths to a 42-14 win over the Panthers in one of the Rabbitohs' most complete performances of the season.

Johnston had a hat-trick in the bag in the first half and made it five before the hour mark, aided by brilliant performances by Adam Reynolds, Cody Walker and Sam Burgess.

It appeared the former Kangaroo had a sixth late in the piece, which would have put him alone at the top of the club's single-game try-scoring list, but the bunker rightly found a knock-on in the lead-up.

Instead he had to settle for equalling the the club record jointly held by Nathan Merritt, Eric Sladden, Ian...

Pressure Gauge: Penrith Panthers fatal flaw no longer hidden by skewed NRL ladder - Fox Sports

ANTHONY Griffin’s mountain men are the NRL’s flat track bullies, and now even that unenviable tag cannot save them.

Prior to Sunday’s 42-14 shellacking at the hands of if the Rabbitohs, Penrith’s dominance over the competition’s bottom eight sides had them still within reach of the NRL’s better half.

The red hot pre-season favourites still sit in ninth spot, but they’re now four points adrift of the eighth-placed Eels and getting colder every which way you slice and dice their season.

Penrith Panthers keep finals dream alive by downing Manly Sea Eagles - Fox Sports (blog)

PENRITH’s season has drawn breath just as fans feared it was on its deathbed.

With the Panthers struggling to break into finals contention on the back of an underwhelming campaign to date, the team put Manly to the sword to earn two competition points and keep their chances alive.

It came on the back of a staggering 12-4 penalty count which boiled the blood of Sea Eagles skipper Daly Cherry-Evans.

MATCH CENTRE: Panthers 16 v Sea Eagles 8

Still burning from his shock omission from the Queensland side earlier in the week, Cherry-Evans vented his frustration towards referee Henry Perenara who threatened to use the sin bin a number of times throughout the lopsided contest.

Penrith Panthers face battle to save representative stars says The Mole - Wide World of Sports

Panthers battle to save stars

 The struggling Penrith club is set to face a new crisis with representative stars Leilani Latu and Tyrone Peachey both considering asking for releases to join rival clubs for next season.

Latu, a talented ball-playing prop, is signed until the end of 2020 but has been holding secret negotiations with both the Knights and Warriors.

And dynamic utility Peachey has half a dozen clubs interested in his services despite being under contract until the end of 2019.

The pair are both known to be unhappy at the Panthers in the wake of the club’s problems this season.

Penrith Panthers v Manly Sea Eagles, Melbourne Storm v Parramatta Eels: NRL round 18 scores and stats - ABC Online

Semi Radradra (L) after scoring a try for the Eels against the Storm at AAMI Park.

Parramatta Eels have beaten the Storm in Melbourne, after the Panthers were too strong for Manly.

Look back at all the scores and stats from Saturday's NRL.

Quick navigation

Eels take advantage of weakened Storm

Parramatta have taken advantage of an Origin-depleted Melbourne line-up to post a 22-6 victory in their NRL match at AAMI Park.

With the competition-leading Storm missing six of their stars, the Eels benefited from having no State of Origin representatives to book their fourth successive win and consolidate their top eight berth.

The Eels burst out of the blocks on Saturday night and raced to a 16-0 lead, with half-back Mitchell Moses orchestrating their attack, and it proved to be too big a margin for the home side to peg back.

Mount Smart Stadium
Friday, 8pm NZT, 6pm AEDT

Tied on 18 competition points and sitting two wins outside of the NRL Telstra Premiership top eight, Friday night in Auckland shapes as a pivotal match to the 2017 hopes of both the Warriors and Penrith Panthers. 

While Stephen Kearney's side enjoyed the week off with a bye, Penrith ground out a tough 16-8 victory over the fourth-placed Manly Sea Eagles, which keeps them right in the play-off frame.

Prop Albert Vete (arm) and hooker Nathaniel Roache (hamstring) are both out with injuries sustained in Round 17, but the home side get a boost via the return of Kiwi internationals Solomone Kata and Issac Luke. 

Sam Lisone returns to the bench, with Bunty Afoa named to start in the second row.

New Zealand Warriors hoping to get revenge on Penrith Panthers ... - Newshub

Blockbusting centre Solomone Kata and first-choice hooker Issac Luke will return to action for the Warriors in Friday's clash with the Penrith Panthers in Auckland.

Luke returns after missing the Warriors' 26-22 loss to the Sea Eagles with a shoulder injury two weeks ago, while Kata is back after a two-game absence following the death of his brother in Tonga.

With veteran back-rower Ryan Hoffman sidelined due to a foot complaint, Bunty Afoa will once again start in the second-row.

Departing Warriors legend Manu Vatuvei has been named for the last time in the No.5 jersey, although his selection is honorary in his final appearance for the club and Ken Maumalo will start on the left wing.

Mt Smart Stadium will be temporarily renamed Manu Vatuvei Stadium for the match, as the 31-year-old is farewelled after gaining an early release to join Salford in the English Super League.

Kyle Feldt magic sinks Penrith Panthers as North Queensland win without Thurston - The Sydney Morning Herald

Life without Johnathan Thurston is not so bad after all for the North Queensland Cowboys.

Kyle Feldt's acrobatic try just two minutes from full-time and Ethan Lowe's sideline conversion, while staring into the glaring Townsville sun, secured a 14-12 win over gutsy Penrith to celebrate stand-in captain Gavin Cooper's 250th NRL game and what was supposed to be Thurston's 300th.

Thurston's season-ending shoulder injury suffered in Queensland's State Of Origin win on Wednesday looked to have left North Queensland's season teetering on a knife's edge, and a clash against the in-form Panthers was a perfect litmus test.

Penrith Panthers' bold plan could be blueprint to save bush rugby ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

Penrith are exploring the possibility of expanding their footprint by fielding teams in the Western Region championships in what could be the blueprint for saving grassroots rugby league in the country.

At a time when the NRL is setting aside $100 million to stop the mass exodus of junior and bush players, the Panthers are taking matters into their own hands with a series of initiatives they believe will help revive country rugby league. Chief among their plans is fielding Panthers-branded sides in an expanded Western Region competition with a view to eventually fielding an Intrust Super Premiership side out of Bathurst. It is hoped the initiative will be rubber-stamped when it goes before the boards of the Country Rugby League, NSWRL and Panthers for approval.
