On Sunday 19 August 2012, former Shellharbour Shark Adam Docker made his first NRL appearance for the Penrith Panthers in New Zealand.  Adam was called up from the Windsor Wolves in the NSW Cup and played in the back row for the Panthers.  As expected Adam was in the thick of things from the time he got on the field and help set up a try for the Panthers who defeated the Warrriors in a close game.

21 year old Adam played all his junior league with the Sharks before playing Under 18's, throught to 1st grade.  He also played with the St. George Illawarra Dragons National Youth Competition in 2011 and had a game or two with the former Shellharbour Marlins in the Jim Beam Cup and the Shellharbour Dragons in the NSW Cup.

Adam is our most recent junior to play in the NRL following in the footsteps of Dragons and State of Origin front rower Trent Merrin.
