IWA Wrestling set to rock Penrith Panthers - Daily Telegraph

  • The remains of ‘iconic’ Wonderland Sydney
  • Win tickets to Madama Butterfly

PENRITH Panthers is getting ready to rumble as International Wrestling Australia rolls into town this week.

Blacktown wrestler Nathan “Masked Kamikaze” Randal said the Penrith show would be the biggest of the year.

“The card will feature six blockbuster matches,” he said. “I will take on Melbourne’s menacing Syd Parker which is set to be a cracker.

“Alex Titan will defend his IWA Heavyweight Title against USA’s Matt ‘M-Dogg’ Cross and Adelaide’s Jonah Rock in a triple threat match in the main event.”

But the highlight of the night will be the epic east versus west match, when the defending trans-Tasman Champion, Penrith local Chris “Cowboy” Abbott, takes on Jackson “The Beach Bum” Kelly from Manly.

Penrith Panthers 2017 season review - The Roar

The Panthers came into 2017 as equal premiership favourites, however, after a nightmare start to the season, they never really made their presence felt.

While they did build some significant momentum in the second half of the season and into the finals, their failure to get past Week 2 matched their 2016 output. This was a side that never really reached its potential, despite some relative success.

Season Finish – Exited Week 2 of Finals – (Regular Season – seventh, 13 Wins, 11 Losses, 504 Points For, 459 Points Against)

Season Ranking 6/10 – I can’t go any higher than a six for Penrith, given they came into the season as equal favourites for the Premiership. However, after a disastrous start to the season where they won just two of their first nine games, they did well to make the finals with relative comfort in the end.

While they kept racking up the wins late in the season, many...

Penrith Panthers deny Matt Moylan has asked for a release from the ... - Wide World of Sports

Panthers captain Matt Moylan hasn’t requested a release from Penrith according to the club amid reports the NSW and Australian representative could join the Cronulla Sharks on a player swap deal involving James Maloney.

Moylan laughed off claims that he wants out of the club and join the Sharks when approached by Nine news at Penrith headquarters today.

Cronulla also told the Nine network the club won’t let Maloney leave the club and that the Sharks had cap space to have Moylan and Maloney both on their books for next year.

Matt Moylan laughed off questions about his release from the club.

Media reports have suggested the Panthers are reluctant to agree to a release unless they get something in return for letting Moylan out of his $3.6 million four-year contract.

The Panthers are reportedly also open to compensation for Moylan’s release with some reports suggesting a $250,000...

Penrith youngster Lachlan Stein uses Rugby League World Cup to springboard on NRL map - Fox Sports

PUNTED after six games in the Holden Cup.

That’s right. Just six games. Not for bad behaviour but for form.

You wouldn’t blame the kid for throwing in the towel then and there but that’s not Lachlan Stein.

He’s too driven for that. Far too determined to quit after a speed bump.

That was 2015 with St George Illawarra.

Meet Gold Coast Titans new coach Garth Brennan and why NRL's greatest minds love him - Fox Sports

ALLOW us to introduce you to Garth Brennan.

Who is he? He’s the man you wouldn’t hear a bad word about.

All his endorsements are glowing.

Blues skipper Boyd Cordner, who played under Brennan in Newcastle’s under 16s, dubbed him “one of the best coaches I’ve ever had” during an interview with Fairfax Media in 2014.

“He’s a real smart football coach, but away from footy he knows how to get the best out of you and the best out of players. It always makes a massive difference if you can get your players to want to play for you. That’s something Garth has.”

HUGE TAYLOR DEAL AS NEW COACH GOES SHOPPING

But what else would you expect from a good ole country bloke?

Newcastle born and bred, Brennan played in the lower grades before turning to coaching.

He worked in the Knights system under Brian Smith before taking charge of their inaugural NYC team in 2010.

Penrith Panthers coach Anthony Griffin extends deal until 2020 ... - Daily Telegraph

ANTHONY Griffin will guide Penrith until the end of the 2020 NRL season after club boss Phil Gould confirmed a two-year extension for the head coach at their end-of-season awards night.

Following a semi-final finish this year, Gould praised Griffin for being just the second coach in the club’s history to lead the Panthers to consecutive finals appearances.

The former Brisbane mentor had been tipped to remain at the foot of the mountains since midway through the year and Gould announced the deal on Wednesday night.

“He’s had a wonderful start to his term here at Panthers,” Gould said. “His first two years at the club we’ve qualified for the finals. It’s the first time we’ve been back-to-back finals for something like 15 years, and only for the third time in the club’s history.

“He becomes only the second coach to do it in his first two years of coaching the Panthers.

Penrith Panthers claim NSW Cup title over Wyong Roos - The Sydney Morning Herald

Penrith put a full stop of the Sydney Roosters' rugby league weekend from hell when they defeated Wyong 20-12 to claim the NSW Cup premiership on Sunday.

Just a day after the Roosters were knocked out in the NRL grand final qualifier by North Queensland, their reserve grade side and minor premiers Wyong were dismantled by three tries in eight minutes either side of half-time in their decider.

The win capped off Penrith's second reserve grade title in four years, and booked them a date with the Papua New Guinea Hunters in next week's national championship game, after they claimed the Queensland Cup on Sunday.

Halfback Darren Nicholls was immense in the win, while sons of former Panthers Steve Waddell and John Cartwright - Corey and Jed - each scored tries in the win.

Penrith trailed 6-0 on the halftime siren,...

Intrust Super Cup Grand Final: Penrith Panthers smash PNG Hunters 42-18 - NEWS.com.au

TWO million Papua New Guineans gathered around TVs on Sunday to watch their beloved PNG Hunters play in the Intrust Super Cup Grand Final would have flicked the switch by halftime.

Tony Satini, a part-time Panthers player who works as a courier and has the longest rat’s tail in rugby league, scored four tries by the break to help set up a powerhouse 42-18 victory.

The blowout victory was further proof Garth Brennan is a man ready to handle an NRL head coaching role.

The win will also be remembered by Satini who played one NRL game with Manly in 2014, but remains without a contract for 2018.

“I’ve come back to Penrith where I was on a trial-and-train contract and playing in the Ron Massey Cup with St Mary’s,’’ Satini told The Daily Telegraph.
