Lock: Michael Ross. Left the Panthers in 2014 and now plays rugby union for Eastern Suburbs.
Prop: Andy Saunders. Captained the 2014 Panthers NYC side before stepping up to the NSW Cup squad for their successful finals campaign that year. A reliable performer for the NSW Cup side again in 2015.
Interchange: Brendan Attwood. Played for the Panthers NYC side in 2014 before featuring for the NSW Cup team in 2015.

Wing: Dallin Watene-Zelezniak. Played for the Panthers NSW Cup side at the start of 2014, made his NRL debut in Round Five, and went on to play 10 matches in the top grade that season. A collapsed lung ended his 2015 season after an impressive start to the year.
Interchange: Isaah Yeo. Made the step up for his NRL debut in the first round of the 2014 season and went on to play 10 NRL games that year. A reliable and versatile performer in the Panthers' injury-ravaged 2015 season.

Centre: James Roberts. Was released by the Panthers at the start of the 2014 season and quickly snapped up by Gold Coast Titans. After an indifferent first year on the Gold Coast, he found top form in 2015 and was named Dally M Centre of the Year.
