This page provides the conduit between the “main” site and the external “stats” site, as follows:

Premiership results: Every premiership match from match #1 in 1967 to the one most recently played.

Other results, outside of premiership football but were still within competitions as mandated by the relevant governing body of the time:

  • Pre-season [1967-1981; 1990-1995]: A knockout competition that had been in existence since 1962 and the match against Cronulla at Redfern Oval on 24 February 1967 is considered to be the club;s first ever competitive premiership match. The competition was axed for the 1982 season, returning in 1990 for another 6 seasons before being axed once again. The seasons in between these competitions (1982 to 1989 and 1996 to date) have involved trials in the absence of this competition.
  • Endeavour Cup [1971]: This was a knockout competition  that was hosted by the Cronulla Sharks in 1970 and 1971 that was for the 4 next best placed teams outside of those who qualified for the semi finals that season (i.e. 5th to 8th spot). Penrith participated in the 1971 edition after finishing in 8th spot.
  • Mid Week Cup [1974-1989]: This was a knock out competition, held on Wednesday evenings during the regular season, against both other premiership teams as well as invitational teams from both Australia and New Zealand. It was usually a straight knock out, but various group formats were used between 1979 and 1982.
  • Channel Ten Challenge Cup [1978]: This was a knock out competition that was played at Leichhardt Oval in 1978 that was for the 7 teams that missed out on the finals (including Penrith), as well as an 8th team that was eliminated in the first week of the finals.
  • Sevens [1988-1995; 2003-2004]: This was a seven a side tournament, with seven minute halves. It was established in 1988 with all the premiership teams competing, expanding to a worldwide format in 1992, with a number of international teams invited. Penrith did not compete in the 1996 and 1997 tournaments given its alignment with Super League and being staged as a tournament under the ARL umbrella. It made a brief return for two seasons in 2003 and 2004 before being shelved again. The format was regenerated as a nine a side tournament in 2014, known as the Auckland Nines.
  • World Club Challenge [1991; 2004]: This has been a one off match between the champions of the Australian and English premierships, with Penrith participating in 1991 and 2004 as a result of being the Australian premiers in the previous season.
  • World Club Championship [1997]: This was a pool competition during the one season of Super League, in which the Australian teams played 3 teams from the English Super League in a home and away format. Despite winning all six matches, it was the structure of the pool system and for and against that ultimately prevented Penrith from qualifying for the finals.
  • Auckland Nines [2014-2016]: This is a nine a side pre-season tournament, with nine minute halves, played at Eden Park in Auckland. 5 point tries are awarded if scored in the “blue zone”, bounded by both goalposts.
