Dear Panthers fans,

2016 will be the club's 50th season and we need your help to celebrate this historic chapter in the Panthers journey.

We have a number of exciting initiatives to announce in the coming months as we use our milestone season to reflect on the club’s proud history, while striving to set new standards on and off the field.

We welcome Australian representative forward Trent Merrin to the club, along with prodigious talent in the form of youngsters Te Maire Martin and Viliame Kikau.

We continue to develop our Panthers success stories Matt Moylan, Bryce Cartwright, Reagan Campbell-Gillard and Dallin Watene-Zelezniak into some of the biggest names in the game.

The Panthers Rugby League Academy will open its doors early next year and provide a world-class facility for our current players, while also nurturing the next generation of NRL stars.

But make no mistake - members are truly the heart and soul of our club. Their Panther Pride motivates us in building a bright future for the club and the players are constantly inspired by their support.

Many of you took the time to complete our Members and Fans Survey at the conclusion of the 2015 season. We have taken your feedback, ideas and suggestions on board as we work together to provide the best ever gameday experience in 2016.

We look ahead to the coming season with optimism and excitement, and hope you will join us.
