Senior Grade bowed out of their first season in Division 1 with a 23 point loss to UTS in the Elimination Final. After a slow start, the Rams found their way back into the game to be within a kick at half-time. However, a five goal to one third term by their opponents buried the Rams' chances of going deeper into the finals series. Nevertheless, it finished a very successful year in the highest division of football in which a Penrith side has ever competed.

The goalkickers and best players were all completed by former local juniors, a wonderfully promising sign for the future of the club. Leading the way was 2012 Under 18 Pat Pope, with four goals.

UNSW/ES 1 3 9 3 3 21 4 4 28 7 7 49
PENRITH 0 1 1 2 8 20 7 11 53 12 13 85

Goal Kickers: G. Howell 4, B. Robinson 3, J. Anasis 2, B. Roney , T. Corless , B. Roberts
Best Players: M. Woodford, B. Roney, M. Lewis, L. Smith, B. Wilson, M. Cummins

Reserve Grade bounced back from the Elimination Final loss to UTS with what ended up to be a convincing 36 point win over UNSW/ES in the First Semi-Final.


The Rams had a very slow opening to the game, but whilst dominating the second quarter could not kick straight - 2.7 for the term costing the side a significant half-time lead. Instead they went in a point down.

However, the game opened up from then on and the Rams kicked away with five goals apiece in the third and final terms to keep their finals hopes well and truly alive.

Gordie Howell and Ben Robinson led the goalkicking with four and three goals respectively, whilst big man Mark Woodford was the side's best, closely followed by defender Bryce Roney.
