Club CEO, Matt Cameron, spoke about the importance of setting goals, being respectful and the management of the salary cap. Recruitment Officer, Jim Jones, spoke about the important personal qualities he looks for in a potential player outside of their ability on the field. The Panthers’ Wellbeing Officer, Joe Nulaveau (Premiership winner 2003) spoke about this important aspect for every person’s life for their growth and development.
Former players Sam Jones and Lee Hopkins then took our players onto the field and put them through some drills. Finally, the Premiership trophy was placed on display for students to get a photo with and many of our students took this opportunity. The representatives from Penrith were highly impressed with our students and were amazed by the memory of Brendan Escott from Year 11 who can recall the scores from every game since 2016. On behalf of St Edward’s, I would like to sincerely thank the Penrith Panthers Club for taking the time to educate and inspire our students who love the game of Rugby League.
