New All Blacks Head Coach Scott Razor Robertson has retained seven members of his predecessor, Ian Fozzy Foster’s coaching gang with Jason Ryan and Sir Wayne Smith the best known big guns.

Forward packs are the engine room of every NRL Club and their importance can’t be understated to a team’s success.

They lay the platform for every team’s halves and outside backs to produce points and it’s not a surprise the competition’s heavyweights boast the best packs in the league.

The reigning premiers, the Panthers, have some of the NRL’s scariest and most consistent forwards in their pack who have helped them to three-straight titles.

The 2024 Panthers Pack Rating is “A+” with Props: James Fisher-Harris and Moses Leota, Hooker: Mitch Kenny, Backrowers: Liam Martin and Scott Sorensen, Lock: Isaah Yeo. The Panthers pack is simply the competition benchmark.
