Chris Grevsmuhl



  • Released by the Panthers to address a “personal matter”

    If he is looking to play NRL next season I’d love him in our colours

    Thoughts?

    Penrith release young star Chris Grevsmuhl from contract for personal reasons

    PENRITH have released talented forward Chris Grevsmuhl from his NRL contract due to personal reasons.

    The 23-year-old has not returned to pre-season training with the Panthers, needing to take a break from the game to address a private matter.

    Grevsmuhl still had two seasons to run on his contract but has taken an indefinite break from the game.

    Foxsports.com.au understands the release was by way of mutual consent with the Panthers making Grevsmuhl’s welfare their top priority.

    The Townsville product’s manger, Col Davis, was contacted for comment but he declined to give one.

    Speculation has already started that the former South Sydney star will join the Cowboys next season, with Paul Green’s side light on forwards following the departure of James Tamou and retirement of Ben Hannant.

    However foxsports.com.au understands football is the furthest thing from the former Australian Schoolboy representative’s mind.

    Grevsmuhl joined the Panthers in May this year after being granted a release from the Rabbitohs, with whom he made his NRL debut for in 2015.
    a
    After leaving Redfern, Grevsmuhl branded former coach Michael Maguire a “mind game specialist.”

    The Panthers are expected to release a statement confirming that the club has parted way with the back-rower.

    While the loss of Grevsmuhl is a blow for the club ahead of season 2017, they aren’t short of talent on their roster.

    The departure has opened up a place in the top 17 for the likes of Moses Leota, Leilani Latu or new recruit Tim Browne to claim.

    For sure…if it doesn’t work out we could always release him…



  • He has left 2 clubs now because of “problems” in a very short space of time.So a big no from me because he will probably do it again until he sorts himself out



  • looks like he is heading to the cows



  • “Compassionate” release.



  • Had had some really good games at Souths. I remember one where he tore Manly apart. Plays in a position we need.
    However I have no idea where his head is at, maybe he needs time away from the game like Jamal did.



  • He’ll be at the Cows before season’s end.


  • Banned

    He’s from Townsville so expect him to be at the cowboys, but unfortunately looks a big risk due to personal issues going on.



  • if he nth qld boy its tough for those boys to live in Sydney another world for them no wonder he didn’t last in redfern . he will prob go up and kill it .
    its like when we bring the keebra park boys down and they live in Sydney I couldn’t do I moved out of Sydney 5yrs ago and cant handle going back to the traffic



  • Be nice , but not likely for a variety of reasons

    Cowboys might need to release someone for 2018 , that might be who we might need to focus on

    For every action , there needs to be a reaction , we need to start reacting on the player market

    I’ve lived in Sydney my whole life, moved up the hill four months ago and I can’t handle Sydney anymore.

    Same here , hate going back to Brisbane these days



  • always looked a likely type. runs those tough lines and a solid defender. probably a year ahead of aloiai in development. id take him here but dont expect it to happen.



  • Released on ‘‘compassionate grounds’’. Doesn’t scream to me that he’ll turn around and sign with another Sydney club.



  • If he signs with another club it doesn’t look good on the NRL. What does a contract mean these days?
