Missed the finals twice between 1991 and 2019.What year did Brisbane last win a grand final? They haven't been strong in a while I don't think. Solid and some good sides but when where they great?
Yeah exactly Broncos have been handed a gift by souths.They got lucky fundamentally strong Souths are run by clowns.
The only winner tonight between Smugs and Cheats should be the orthopaedic surgeon.
Only Roosters and Storm have been genuine power houses. Penrith are great right now but it's very recent. Souths were almost great around the time they won their premiership, but again, it was too short lived for powerhouse status. The Cowboys also made two grand finals in a three year period, with half a dozen merkins picked in Origin.2015 was a strange year. Brisbane where not what I felt a dynasty being built. It was similar to Tigers kind of thing.
Penrith, Roosters, Souths, Storm have been the power houses of the last 10yrs I would say.
So Brisbane have not won it for 15 seasons. I doubt will this one which would make it 16 yrs. Long time between drinks.
You're comparing apples and oranges. The Broncos have been in a one team town for decades, with zero meaningful competition in a rugby league heartland. They should be contenders nearly every year. Parramatta are in a crowded market, with minimal corporate appeal (we are the people's team, which isn't the aspirational vibe that corporates want) and a short drive from half a dozen other clubs, so we don't even benefit from offering location stability to players with young families. In short, success for them should be measured differently than it is for us.Missed the finals twice between 1991 and 2019.
I agree they have underachieved since their last Premiership. But they still hovered around the top 6 teams most years without threatening to win a comp.
So thats what some claim as sustained success is perinnal finals appearances.
Sounds pretty familiar to a team based in western sydney called Parramatta in the past 5 years. Qualifying for the finals every year without being good enough to break the premiership door open.
I cannot cheer Luai. Biggest grub in the game so Storm for me. Tear him a new one Nelson. Just hoping they beat the sh*t out of each other.

Let's wait and see how good Reynolds goes next year before deciding Souths should've paused the rebuild and signed him for multiple years.
i don't care who wins i just want to see them bash the crap out of each other for 80 minutes
Yeah looking at total wins, they are up there with the Chooks, despite only winning one premiership to three. Obviously premierships take some luck, so I would agree the Panthers (and Souths) are in the same class as Easts, but behind the Storm. Total wins over the past ten and a bit years:No. Penrith have been out of this world in the last 3 seasons.
Prior 6 seasons they made finals 4 times.
So thats 7/9 seasons with 3 and this year pending 4 top 4 finishes. That's very succesfull. Also a minor premiership and equal points last season to the minor premiership.
2019 - 10th
2018 - 5th
2015 - 11th
2014 - 4th
I expect they will drop right off next season. But who knows.
