Ahead of the 2015 Holden Cup Grand Final we take a look at our high-flying NYC side and assess who will be eligible to remain in the squad next season.

Panthers is pleased to confirm all players listed below are contracted to play for the club in 2016.

Amazingly, 12 of the 17 players who will take the field at ANZ Stadium on Sunday are able to play in the Panthers NYC side again in 2016.

The older players will progress into the Panthers NSW Cup squad next season and work towards the ultimate goal of establishing themselves in the NRL.
