2017 OFFICIAL PANTHERS HAROLD MATTHEWS TRAIN-ON SQUAD
After participating in the clubs selection trials and then subsequently being selected in the train on squad, if a player then declines that offer to accept a position at another NRL / NSWRL club to play Harold Matthews, he will not be permitted to return to Penrith District Junior Rugby League competition for the remainder of that playing season (or until the associated playing contract expires if applicable).
It must be made clear at this point that NSWRL development fees may be imposed on players that are ‘quarantined’ by the Panthers (have been listed with the NSWRL on protection lists).
Subsequently, if a selected player starts the Panthers program (receiving training apparel etc.) and then withdraws, a participation fee of $300 will be charged as a form of compensation to the club for training apparel and program costs incurred thus far.
