Sterlo reflects on his career, winning premierships and high hopes for Penrith
Four-time premiership player and NRL icon, Peter Sterling, has high hopes for the Penrith Panthers ahead of the 2021 grand final.
The former media commentator and league great reflected on his career in a wide-ranging chat with Peter Psaltis and Paul ‘Fatty’ Vautin on Monday night’s Wide World of Sports.
He said to be part of the first ever premiership at Parramatta was something “really special”.
“For me I can’t rank anything higher than winning a premiership,” he said.
“To have done it a couple of times, certainly for the first time, it’s something I am very proud of, and always will be.”
He said at this stage of the season, it’s the tries you stop more than you score which decide how successful a team will be.
Sterlo explained why he stepped away from his role as a commentator, at age 61, saying he has had a ball.
“It was just time for me, Paul.”
When the border opens up, he has a European summer in his sights.
He said he’s never taken the job for granted, including the Footy Show days with Fatty.
