Dear Wests (Brisbane) Rugby League Club Members and Supporters,

It is my great pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all of you as we embark on another exciting season at the foot of Mt Coot-tha in the heart of Bardon. Wests (Brisbane) Junior Rugby League Club stands as a proud institution with a rich history.

Purtell Park has been our home, witnessing the growth and success of our club over the decades. We take pride in being one of the oldest junior league clubs in Brisbane, and it's an honour to have hosted some of the league's greatest and well-known players. Their legacy continues to inspire our players and contribute to the strong foundation of our Panther Pride.

At Wests, we are not just a club; we are a community that values the spirit of rugby league. We are thrilled to have the capacity to field teams from under 6's to Opens, providing a platform for the enjoyment, development, and active participation of both boys and girls. Our commitment is to foster a safe and friendly environment where every player, regardless of skill level, can thrive and experience the joy of the game.

As we kick off this season, we invite players, old and new, to join us in embracing the Panther Pride. Let's come together, celebrate the camaraderie, and enjoy the game that unites us all. Wests (Brisbane) welcomes you to a season filled with excitement, growth, and the sheer pleasure of playing rugby league.

Here's to a fantastic season ahead!

Warm regards,

Gareth Pritchard
