The Hunter Mariners were a Newcastle based team that was created for the breakaway Super League competition in the mid 1990s.
The first meeting was in Round 6 of the solitary Super League season of 1997 at Penrith Stadium. In what was described in the Sydney Morning Herald as a “bizarre evening out west”, the Panthers looked assured of posting a comfortable victory midway through the second half by leading 28-14, when two quick tries to the visitors scaled it back to 28-24, but the Panthers then pulling away again to record a 36-24 victory.
The return match was in Newcastle six weeks later – denied the use of the Newcastle Knights home ground, their home ground was the 11,000 seater Topper Stadium. The Mariners convincingly defeated the Panthers 30-6.
At the end of 1997, both the Australian Rugby League and Super League called a truce and created the National Rugby League. The Mariners would not survive the cut going into 1998, with a number of their players heading to the newly admitted Melbourne Storm.
