PLAYERS | Yileen Gordon


Panther 500

3 matches [2011]

0 points


South Sydney junior who had debuted with the Rabbitohs in 2005, and after 68 matches across six seasons which included two seasons at Canterbury, he joined the Panthers for the 2011 season.

The size of a forward but speed of a back, “Buddy” started the season in the NSW Cup in the second row. He made his NRL debut for the Panthers in Round 8 versus the Warriors and had the distinction of being first grade player number 500 for Penrith. He only made two more appearances, all off the bench over the next month before being dropped back to the NSW Cup where he played out the season, mainly in the centres.

He was released early in 2012 due to misbehaviour and has since played for a number of lower grade teams in the NSW Cup, including a return to South Sydney in 2019 but has not made a return to the NRL in that time.
